Partnerships and Partner Organizations

CAPHE builds on 20 years of community-academic research partnerships. Members from these long-standing partnerships serve on CAPHE’s Steering Committee, and are responsible for building and implementing CAPHE’s Public Health Action Plan. The Steering Committee meets 4-6 times annually, with regular subcommittee meetings as needed. Various organizations serve as fiduciary for CAPHE projects, based on expertise and capacity. This structure promotes collaboration and shared decision making at all levels of the CAPHE project, ensuring Detroit residents will have a significant voice in identifying and creating solutions to Detroit’s air pollution problems.

CAPHE’s work is made possible by funding from the National Institute of Health and Environmental Sciences, RO1ES022616, and the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation.  Additional support is provided by the Michigan Lifestage Environmental Exposures and Disease (M-LEEaD) Center, #P30ES017885.
