The Center for Environmental Health constantly apply for and/or participate in various grants with our community partners to help provide opportunities for families and schools to participate in environmental health programs, along with technical study grants.

Current grants

The Children's Mercy Kansas City Asthma Friendly HomesPartnership (KCAFHP) is a community-based participatory program that provides children with asthma and their families with the opportunity to enroll in the Healthy Home Program and get help with home-related indoor contaminants and irritants called asthma triggers in order to improve asthma health and management.

Through an innovative collaboration of several Kansas City community programs and organizations, KCAFHP will offer these free services through CMH and its clinics, and other local clinics and health providers. Northland Neighborhood Incorporated (NNI) (link), Westside Housing Organization and Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council serve as strategic community partners and will serve as community-based mentors for other CDCs and neighborhood organizations located throughout the KC Metro. Several community partners will actively work with CMH on this community collaboration including the CMH Pediatric Care Network the Greater Kansas City Asthma and COPD Coalition the Kansas City Health Department and the Teaming Up for Asthma Control (TUAC) program. Please contact us for more information.
