Government Affairs

With the growth of NEHA and the ever-increasing complexity of environmental health issues, the NEHA Board of Directors made a commitment to establish a Government Affairs program. The program provides a single organizational unit to identify and research issues. In close cooperation with NEHA’s board, the Government Affairs program serves as the mechanism for NEHA to take positions on policy and legislative issues. Furthermore, it establishes and maintains the critical relationships with federal agencies, other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and the many coalitions, initiatives and work groups that carry out this important work.


Is there a legislative or public policy issue  that you believe is important for NEHA to explore?

Contact us.

There are three distinct elements to the Government Affairs program. They are: 

  1. policy and legislation;

  2. liaison with federal, state and local agencies;

  3. liaison with other NGO’s and private industry. 

In addition, this program tracks key pieces of legislation, conducts research for NEHA legislative and policy positions, and works under the direction of the Board of Directors in communicating these policy positions.
