The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2020 Environmental Public Health Tracking: Tracking Mentoring Fellowship Program. We are seeking proposals from unfunded local public health agencies to work with a tracking program grantee on an environmental health project that utilizes tracking data. Fellows are supported through a NEHA cooperative agreement with CDC.

This fellowship is only open to local health agencies in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, and Washington. The health department that receives the fellowship will be awarded a stipend of $2,500. The mentee awarded the fellowship will work with their state's Tracking Program to execute the project. 

To be eligible for this fellowship, the applicant must be a public health or environmental health professional, epidemiologist, or other related program manager from a local public health agency (city, county, and tribal) that is NOT currently funded as part of CDC’s National Tracking Program.

Deadline to submit an application is February 28, 2020.
