Michigan Awarded Grant for PFAS Health Study

Oct 11, 2019

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services was selected as one of seven recipients to receive grant funding to study the health effects of PFAS in drinking water. The $1 million grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will fund a one-year, multi-site study to investigate the relationship between drinking water contaminated with PFAS and health effects.

The state will conduct this study in the City of Parchment, Cooper Township, and the North Kent County area. These communities were selected for the study because uniquely high PFAS levels have been found in their drinking water and their populations are large enough to meet the requirements of the grant. Michigan aims to recruit 1,000 adults and 300 children across the selected communities to participate in the project.
