Local Boards of Health and Environemental Health Policy: Brownfields and Land Reuse


NALBOH created a factsheet on how boards of health may get involved in brownfield redevelopment projects as a way to reduce exposures to chemicals, contaminants, and safety risks, and address health disparities. This factsheet may be able to help local jurisdictions implement Health in All Policies by informing them of the policies, legal authority, tools, and resources on how to insert health considerations into brownfield redevelopment and land reuse projects.
