For Health Agencies
Welcome to the “For Health Agencies” web page. This page has been created for health agencies to provide resources and capacity to engage in Land Reuse and Environmental Health. These resources include the Engaging Health Departments in Brownfields/Land Reuse Redevelopment short videos and the Environmental Health Resources Self Learning Modules.

They may be unaware of funding that is available to them to work on these land reuse issues, and they may be unaware of ATSDR’s support and technical assistance for LHDs.
The examples of projects of state and local health departments representatives may inspire local health departments/health agency staff to become more engaged in brownfields/land reuse:
The Environmental Health Resources Self Learning Modules provide health agencies with an overview of environmental health topics. Click on the Environmental Health Resources: Self Learning Modules image below for an overview and to select individual models.
