The Utah Department of Health is seeking public comment on the renewal of its nearly $1 million federal Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant.
The federal grant would fund local health department preventive health services, rape prevention, epidemiological studies, cardiovascular disease and hypertension control. It would also provide money for family high risk and cholesterol programs, health education, programs to reduce health risks, the Healthy Utah program, emergency medical services administration and the State Health Laboratory.Copies of the grant proposal are available at the Department of Health and at local association of government offices.
Written questions or comments should be directed by Nov. 2 to Dr. Brett Lazar or Nef Martinez, Utah Department of Health, Division of Community Health Services, P.O. Box 16660, 288 N. 1460 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84116-0660.
