  • Description:
    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) are collaborating to achieve community environmental and health goals through a Memorandum of Understanding signed in July 2007. By leveraging their knowledge and resources, the three agencies' goal is to maximize help they offer communities, state governments and tribes. EPA is sharing its expertise in identifying and managing environmental exposures, while CDC and ATSDR are sharing their expertise in developing health assessments, monitoring exposure, and providing health education.

    EPA, CDC and ATSDR developed this federal grants guide to provide information on current funding opportunities that are available nationwide and are related to meeting environmental and public health goals. The guide is targeted to community groups, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, state and local governments and tribes that are working on projects related to identifying, monitoring and cleaning up toxics in their communities. The guide includes grant programs that provide support for communities to plan, execute and evaluate their projects.

    While this grants guide attempts to be as comprehensive as possible in describing relevant federal grant programs for community environmental and public health activities, programs are continually evolving and creating new funding opportunities. This guide focuses only on active grants. EPA, CDC and ATSDR intend to update this guide annually to allow communities to easily access current funding opportunities. Additionally, the guide describes federal programs that are only available nationwide and does not include region- or state-specific opportunities.
