State Biomonitoring Grants

Program History

For three decades, CDC's Division of Laboratory Sciences has produced data on the U.S. population's exposure to hundreds of environmental chemicals and published its findings in peer-reviewed literature and in the National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals.

In 2009, CDC launched the State Biomonitoring Cooperative Agreement. The goal of the 5-year project was to increase the capability and capacity of states to conduct biomonitoring and state population-based biomonitoring surveillance to assess human exposure to environmental chemicals.

Program Information

Maps of states currently funded by the State Biomonitoring Cooperative Agreement

CDC's Division of Laboratory Sciences provides funding and support to these states by training laboratory staff on analytical methods, data processing, and sample management. CDC program staff also provide technical support to state public health laboratories and conduct site visits. Funded state biomonitoring programs and CDC staff meet annually to share best practices and address broad technical issues.

When the program started in 2009, thirty-three states applied for funding, and following an objective panel review, California, New York, and Washington were awarded a total of $5 million annually to support their state-based laboratory biomonitoring programs.

In 2014, when a new funding opportunity was announced there were 20 applications and following an objective panel review, six awardees were selected:

  • California
  • Massachusetts
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • Virginia
  • Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico (as part of the Four Corners States Biomonitoring Consortium)
