Radiation Protection of the Public as Practiced by the State and Local Radiation Programs
CDC announces availability of FY18 funds to implement CDC-RFA-EH18-1803 Radiation Protection of the Public as Practiced by State and Local Radiation Programs. This 5-year initiative is to prevent/reduce unnecessary radiation to all populations by supporting implementation, evaluation and dissemination of practice- and evidence-based strategies in radiation protection that ultimately lead to reduction in the risk of illness/deaths associated with unnecessary radiation exposure. Funding will support recipients that have: A successful history of working with established federal, state and local radiation programs; Expertise developing strategies that address current/new areas of radiation protection of the public; Organizational capacity to effectively, efficiently, and immediately implement locally tailored evidence- and practice-based strategies. Recipients may use a multi-faceted approach including joint working groups, annual meetings, training and workshops to address the needs of protection of the public from unnecessary radiation that should result in a reduction in the risk of illness/deaths associated with unnecessary radiation exposure. Measurable outcomes should be in alignment with one or more of NCEH performance goal(s): Determine human health effects associated with environmental exposures; Prevent or reduce illness, injury and death related to environmental factors; Build and enhance effective partnerships to improve environmental health capacity.
