Media Contact: Christopher Bloom, email@example.com, 443.539.4154
COLUMBIA, MD (November 6, 2018) — The National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH), in collaboration with the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), the National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO), and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), will offer support to local governmental agencies to implement a Health in All Policies strategy as part of their lead prevention implementation program and activities. This effort is supported through cooperative agreements with CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health (CDC-RFA-OT18-1802: Strengthening Public Health Systems and Services through National Partnerships to Improve and Protect the Nation’s Health).
Up to three entities will be awarded a maximum funding amount of $20,000 each, as well as technical assistance from these national partners along the way. The purpose of these grants is to advance local efforts to reduce lead exposure and its effects and build capacity to use a Health in All Policies approach for future efforts.
Communities may apply to use funding for either a new activity or one that that is already in the planning stage. However, applicants may not use funds to support attempts to influence legislation through direct or grassroots lobbying. For example, funds cannot be used for signage that endorses pending legislation or an elected official.
Applicants must submit their online application by 5 p.m. ET, Thursday, December 13, 2018. Awardees will be notified via email by January 4, 2019. The expected period of performance is January 15, 2019 – July 19, 2019. Final reports will be due by July 26, 2019.
