Capacity Building Projects

The University of Rochester Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC) Community Engagement Core (CEC) works with community partners to develop science-based solutions to environmental problems. Strong community partnerships are essential to generate, transmit, and use science to help solve environmental health problems. The CEC is initiating a new Capacity Building Project program in 2023 to provide funding for local organizations to grow their engagement in environmental health. The EHSC will provide up to $10,000 for one Capacity Building Project in 2023. Nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply. Projects should address issues of environmental health disparities in the greater Rochester region. Our overall goals are to build community capacity to address local environmental health problems and identify opportunities for future partnerships with the EHSC.
