Program accomplishments...

In fiscal year 2003, 493 research grant awards were made, of which 101 were competing RPG applications. In fiscal year 2004, it is anticipated that 462 research grant awards will be made. In fiscal year 2005, approximately 485 research grant awards will be made. A Federal Executive Order signed by President Clinton April 21, 1997, "Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks," charges agencies to consider special environmental risks to children. The centers, each funded for 5 years, provide an atmosphere for scientists to interact in establishing outstanding, state-of-the-art research programs addressing environmental contributions to children's health and disease. The centers will facilitate the transition of basic knowledge from the laboratory into strategies that reduce the incidence of environmentally related childhood disease, and establish a national network that fosters communication, innovation, and research.
