The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) have jointly funded the Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Centers (Children's Centers) since 1998. The Children's Centers continue to be successful in protecting children’s health. A total of 46 grants have been awarded to 24 centers through a highly competitive process. EPA and NIEHS have together invested more than $300 million in the Children's Centers program to expand our knowledge on the exposures and health outcomes. The partnership has led to tangible results in communities across the country. Every year, the actively funded Children's Centers meet to provide research updates and engage in discussion with other center researchers, Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Units (PEHSUs), EPA, and NIEHS staff.
