2016 Healthy Communities Grant Program: Executive Summary: The Healthy Communities Grant Program is EPA New England’s main competitive grant program to work directly with communities to reduce environmental risks, protect and improve human health and improve the quality of life.

 *Assess, understand, and reduce environmental and human health risks.
 *Increase collaboration through partnerships and community-based projects.
 *Build institutional and community capacity to understand and solve environmental and human health problems.
 *Advance emergency preparedness and ecosystem resilience.
 *Achieve measurable environmental and human health benefits.

To qualify as eligible projects under the Healthy Communities Grant Program, proposed projects must: (1) be located in and/or directly benefit one or more of the Target Investment Areas; and (2) identify how the proposed project will achieve measurable environmental and/or public health results in one or more of the Target Program Areas.
