Funding- ATSDR Community Health Projects Related to Contamination at Brownfield/Land Reuse Sites


“ATSDR’s mission is to serve the public through responsive public health actions to promote healthy and safe environments and prevent harmful exposures to environmental contaminants. Sites such as Brownfield/Land Reuse sites may be the source of potentially harmful exposures because of contamination from previous property uses. Addressing public health concerns and issues related to the restoration of contaminated properties is essential. ATSDR is funding these community health projects to ensure that public health is an integral part of the land reuse process.

These projects will increase capacity to identify, address, and improve public health in redeveloping Brownfield/Land Reuse sites, ensuring that particular attention is paid to identifying and addressing health issues prior to redevelopment and assessing changes in community health associated with reuse plans and redevelopment. These community health projects that address impacts of contamination at Brownfield/Land Reuse sites will further ATSDR?s public health mission to promote healthy and safe environments and prevent harmful exposures.” (
