U.S. EPA STAR Tribal Environmental Health Research Program
The Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grants program supports research that focuses on the assessment and reduction of risk in susceptible populations. STAR Tribal Environmental Health Research supports research to better understand the health effects of environmental contaminants on tribal populations.
This research is supported by EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Research Program, which provides useful science and tools for decision makers at all levels to help communities advance sustainability as well as achieve regulatory compliance.
