Interventions and Communication Strategies to Reduce Health Risks of Wildland Fire Smoke Exposures
EPA, as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing research that will address behavioral, technical and practical aspects of interventions and communication strategies to reduce exposures and/or health risks of wildland fire smoke. To improve individual and public health, this RFA will seek to understand what actions might be effective for reducing adverse health outcomes of ambient and indoor exposures to wildland fire smoke, and how best to communicate these actions to various groups.
Applications should address at least one of the following Research Areas:
- Assess the effectiveness of various types of interventions in reducing exposures and associated health risks of wildland fire smoke exposure at the individual or community level; and
- Develop and assess the effectiveness of health risk communication strategies in supporting actions to reduce wildland fire smoke exposure.
The STAR Program’s goal is to stimulate and support scientific and engineering research that advances EPA’s mission to protect human health and the environment. This RFA is also supported by EPA’s Air and Energy research program, which supports research needed to inform decisions regarding air quality to protect public health and the environment.
