APPLETREE Program Resources

Through the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR)'s cooperative agreement program titled ATSDR's Partnership to Promote Local Efforts to Reduce Environmental Exposure (APPLETREE) Program, some state health departments received funding and guidance to develop resources for ECE stakeholders. The COVID-19 ECE Collaborative provided support to 16 states to assist in COVID-19 response efforts in ECE facilities and schools.

Check out these developed resources from both the Collaborative and APPLETREE programs used to help protect children's health from environmental health hazards:
