Health in All Policies
Project Funder: This effort is supported through cooperative agreements with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) 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).
Project Partners: 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).
Project Contact: Laura Fudala, firstname.lastname@example.org, 443.539.4167
Project Description: In late 2018/early 2019, a competitive solicitation process was conducted to award up to three entities a grant of $20,000 each, as well as technical assistance from the national partners identified above. The purpose of these grants was 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.
The chosen grantees submitted projects that build and support cross-sector relationships, integrate data systems, and incorporate health into a variety of existing decision-making processes. Additional detail on the selected grantees – Allegheny County Health Department (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), Houston Health Department, Bureau of Community and Children’s Environmental Health (Houston, Texas), Louisville Metro Public Health and Wellness (Louisville, Kentucky) – their specific projects, and original solicitation can be found on the funding opportunity page.
As we work with these recipients over the coming months to provide flexible and responsive technical assistance and expand the range of models and best practices using a Health in All Policies approach to reduce childhood lead exposure, we will use the section below to post related resources (both new and existing) and developed tools that translate shared technical assistance experiences into accessible, informal examples.
