Details

This is an informational webinar that will discuss the application process and required elements for the Integrating Human Health and Well-Being with Ecosystems Services Request for Applications (RFA).

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking applications for collaborative, community-based research that will foster better understanding of how ecosystems support human health and well-being. Specifically, this research examines what limits communities’ ability to integrate human health and well-being with ecosystem services, while recognizing the need to advance the science behind evaluating, quantifying and incorporating cumulative impacts into decision making. The RFA aims to foster a more holistic approach to both assessing risk and cumulative impacts, and also toward climate change adaptation and disaster resilience.

This informational webinar will review the RFA’s major research elements and review criteria. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to find out in greater detail how to apply for this funding opportunity.

The EPA’s Sustainable Healthy Communities (SHC) research program, through the Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, seeks applications for collaborative, community-based research that will foster better understanding of how ecosystems support human health and well-being. Specifically, this research should examine what limits communities’ ability to integrate human health and well-being with ecosystem services, while recognizing the need to advance the science behind evaluating, quantifying and incorporating cumulative impacts into decision making. This RFA also aims to foster a more holistic approach to assessing risk and cumulative impacts, and toward climate change adaptation and disaster resilience. The ultimate goal is to help communities achieve their own objectives.
