ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE: PARTNERSHIPS FOR COMMUNICATION RFA: ES-99-005 Opening Date: April 15, 1999 Letter of Intent Receipt Date: May 7, 1999 Application Receipt Date: July 14, 1999 National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences United States Environmental Protection Agency PURPOSE The purpose of this program is to strengthen the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) support of research aimed at achieving environmental justice for socioeconomically disadvantaged and medically under served populations in the United States. One goal of the NIEHS and the EPA is to stimulate investigative efforts that attempt to address questions related to the influence of economic and social factors on the health status of individuals exposed to environmental toxicants. This component of the research program in environmental justice is designed to stimulate community outreach, training, research and education efforts that will become the catalyst for reducing exposure to environmental pollutants in underserved populations. The main objective of this RFA is to establish methods for linking members of a community, who are directly affected by adverse environmental conditions, with researchers and health care providers and to enable this partnership to develop appropriate research strategies to address environmental health problems of concern. This effort will ensure that: * The community is aware of basic environmental health concepts, issues, and resources. * The community has a role in identifying and defining problems and risks related to environmental exposures. * The community is included in the dialogue shaping research approaches to the problem. The community actively participates with researchers and health care providers in developing responses and setting priorities for intervention strategies. One aim of this program is to facilitate the process of developing the trust needed for establishment of effective partnerships among individuals who are adversely impacted by an environmental hazard in a socioeconomically disadvantaged community, researchers in environmental health, and health care providers. Once this aim is achieved, the collaborative team should then be able to initiate a research program that incorporates all parties and seeks to reduce exposure to or health impact from an environmental contaminant.
