Please share widely: Call for Proposals to build the capacity of local health departments and tribal public health authorities to engage in brownfield planning efforts or projects
The Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division (OHA-PHD) Brownfield Initiative works to build Oregon’s capacity to integrate health considerations into brownfield planning efforts and projects through actions that: engage local residents, support healthy environments, foster collaborations among diverse stakeholders, provide health education, address health inequity, and promote the health benefits of redevelopment. For more information about OHA’s Brownfield Initiative, including examples of projects, visit our website: http://public.health.oregon.gov/HealthyEnvironments/TrackingAssessment/EnvironmentalHealthAssessment/Pages/Brownfields.aspx/
The OHA-PHD is looking to fund and support one project led by a local health department or tribal public health authority to build their capacity to integrate health considerations into brownfield planning efforts and projects. This project will have a particular emphasis on identifying health and equity concerns prior to redevelopment.
Availability of Funds
In January 2015, the OHA-PHD plans to announce one $10,000 award. The project and funding period is planned for January 15, 2015 – September 29, 2015.
We will consider proposals from local or tribal public health authorities that pass funds through to partner agencies/organizations, so long as the project is coordinated in the local or tribal public health authority and contributes to building local public health capacity for future built environment work.
A member of your agency and/or application team must participate in a phone call scheduled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org prior to submitting your application. OHA-PHD must receive an electronic copy of the application by 5:00 PM on Friday, December 5, 2014. Email the application and all attachments to email@example.com.
