The U.S. Center For Disease Control's Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ASTDR) has announced the availability of funds to address public health concerns and issues related to the restoration of contaminated properties. The purpose of the "Community Health Projects (CHP) Related to Contamination at Brownfield/Land Reuse Sites" grant is to increase responsive public health actions by promoting healthy and safe environments and preventing harmful exposures related to contamination at Brownfield/Land Reuse Sites. ATSDR's mission is to serve the public through responsive public health actions to promote healthy and safe environments and prevent harmful exposures. Sites such as Brownfield/Land Reuse sites may have potentially harmful exposures from contamination from previous site uses. Community health projects that address impacts of contamination at Brownfield/Land Reuse sites further ATSDR's public health mission to promote healthy and safe environments and prevent harmful exposures. These projects will have a particular emphasis on identifying health issues prior to redevelopment and/or assessing changes in community health associated with reuse plans and redevelopment.
