Research and Development

The Research and Development (R&D) Department of the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) is responsible for obtaining and administering grants and contracts from outside sources to generate programs and resources to assist the EH professional in "providing a healthful environmental for all." NEHA has a long and successful record in performing grant and contract work, most often in conjunction with federal agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). NEHA has also completed projects with private entities, consortia, and local government entities.

Through the R&D Department, NEHA has developed numerous educational workshops, computer-based training programs, guidance manuals, and two of its credentials for the benefit of environmental health practitioners. Currently, the R&D Department is managing nine major grant-funded programs, all in cooperation with federal agencies.

These programs are:

As a part of NEHA's current grant work, R&D personnel are actively cultivating numerous national partnerships and initiatives including:

  • CDC's National Environmental Public Health Tracking Partners

  • National Coalition for Food-Safe Schools

  • National Onsite Wastewater Management Guidelines Coalition

  • EPA's National Cooperative Partners for Indoor Air Quality

In addition to grant and contract work, the R&D Department recently initiated a new program—the NEHA Center for Environmental Research and Training (NEHA CERT). NEHA CERT is dedicated to the development and delivery of public outreach programs dealing with environmental health issues.

Over the coming year, NEHA will be actively exploring new research and development opportunities in the areas of bio-security/agricultural terrorism response, applied food safety research, environmental health and land use planning, environmental health leadership development, and children's environmental health.
