Preventing Environmental Exposures for Children's Health (PEECH)

PEECH is a community-based partnership to protect children's health. 

PEECH’s goal is to prevent and/or reduce children’s exposures to environmental health hazards. PEECH will build community-based strategies, partnerships, and programming to reduce an array of harmful environmental exposures to children (prenatal to 18 years) in communities disproportionately impacted by environmental and climate hazards. Examples of children’s environmental health hazards include industrial pollution, poor air and water quality, unsafe housing or recreation environments, consumer products, food or nutrition sources, pesticides, exposures from extreme weather conditions, or other environmental harms. 

Starting in 2024, OHA will fund one community-based organization in an environment or climate justice community to develop exposure prevention programming.
