Title: Integrating Human Health and Well-Being with Ecosystem Services


Open Date: 02/22/2016 - Close Date: 04/21/2016


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the release
of the *Integrating
Human Health and Well-Being with Ecosystem Services
 Request for Applications.  This RFA’s goal is to fund community-based
research that will foster better understanding of how human health and
well-being are interconnected with—and depend on—ecosystem services.

Specifically, this research examines how communities can integrate
ecosystem services with human health and well-being to inform their
decision making and management practices. This RFA aims to develop
information that allows communities to integrate environmental, societal
and economic information and to better manage multiple stressors and their
cumulative impacts on humans and ecosystems. The ultimate goal is to help
communities achieve their own objectives while taking advantage of more
relevant and accessible information about ecosystem services.

The *Integrating Human Health and Well-Being with Ecosystems Services* RFA
is part pf EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Research
program. The SHC program provides useful science and tools for decision
makers at all levels to help communities advance sustainability as well as
achieve regulatory compliance.  SHC is collaborating with partners to
conduct research that will result in science-based knowledge to guide
decisions that will better sustain a healthy society and environment in
America's communities.

Partnerships and community engagement are strongly encouraged for this
