Environmental Health Services Support for Public Health Drinking Water Programs to Reduce Drinking Water Exposures

Environmental Health Services Support for Public Health Drinking Water Programs to Reduce Drinking Water Exposures – This FOA seeks applications from state and local health departments and U.S.Territories and Native American tribal public health agencies. Funding these initiatives will improve the recipients’ ability to identify and address drinking water (DW) program performance gaps, improve efficiency and effectiveness of DW programs, and to identify and reduce exposures leading to contamination of drinking water. The intended audiences of this FOA are communities and populations using small drinking water systems (e.g.,private wells, springs, cisterns, tankered water) thst are not covered under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). For example, approximately 13% of U.S. households, or about 43 million people, use private wells in the United States. CDC will fund as many as 20 awards to support DW programs to reduce exposure to waterborne contaminants that affect public health. Current Closing Date for Applications: June 22, 2015.
