State Biomonitoring Programs: Assessing disproportionate exposure to environmental chemicals among communities

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

We seek to leverage the capability and capacity of state public health laboratories to conduct high-quality biomonitoring science to assess human exposure to environmental chemicals. We include a specific focus on investigations for communities unequally affected by exposure to possibly harmful chemicals.

Improved exposure assessment helps states identify exposures to certain environmental chemicals, reduce or eliminate them, and assess the effectiveness of interventions to prevent harm.

You may propose biomonitoring activities based on one or more of the following strategies to complete during a three-year funding cycle:
• Strategy A: Community biomonitoring investigations, which can be a new investigation in an affected community or surveillance activities in a previously exposed community.
• Strategy B: Statewide population surveillance with oversampling of a racial and ethnic minority group or other population that may be unequally affected by environmental chemical exposure.
• Optional strategy C: One-time funding to buy laboratory equipment for your biomonitoring investigations.
