May 19, 2010

Photo: A man writing on a white boardThe National Environmental Health Association has partnered with CDC and ATSDR to provide mini-grants in support of the National Conversation on Public Health and Chemical Exposures.

The mini-grants, up to $500 each, will be used to support Community Conversations, an important part of the National Conversation project.

The National Conversation is working with many organizations and the public to develop an action agenda that will outline how the United States can manage chemicals in ways that are safe and healthy for all people.

Community Conversations provide one way for the public to provide feedback into this process. A Community Conversation Toolkit is available to guide the groups wishing to host a Community Conversation. By using the toolkit, community leaders can hold a community conversation and provide feedback to the National Conversation.

If you would like to apply for the mini-grants, please read the eligibility criteria and apply soon (applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted).

Questions? E-mail for answers or call Kim DeFeo (770) 488-3647.

Warm Regards,

CDC Partnerships
