Environmental Health Innovation AwardDon't Miss This Opportunity to Tell Your Story: Get Recognized for Your Work Supporting Environmental Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic!

The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, wants to recognize environmental health heroes who have used innovative environmental health services or practice strategies to improve the health and wellness of their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

NEHA is offering awards between $500–$10,000 in recognition of environmental health heroes who developed innovative services and strategies to help slow the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to carry out essential environmental health work in new, different, safer, or more efficient ways throughout the pandemic. We will be profiling these teams to elevate their stories and creativity, as well as offering awards. 

Submit now! The deadline to submit an application is May 14, 2021.



These awards are made possible under the Strengthening Environmental Public Health Systems Project, which provides state, territorial, local, and tribal health agencies with improved capacity in cross-sector collaboration for Health in All Policies (HiAP), data-driven decision making, and environmental health topics.
