Toxics Use Reduction Networking Grants

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description TURN enjoyed a successful end-of-year event at the Massachusetts State House in June 2001. The six grantees offered presentations and information booths, and over 100 legislators, program staff and community visitors were present. The TURN Program was established by the Institute in 1995 to encourage involvement by community organizations and municipalities in the TURA program, promoting safer and cleaner industrial processes that enhance the economic vitality of Massachusetts firms, while protecting the environment, workers, and public health.

Two types of grants are awarded under the TURN program:community awareness projects designed to raise awareness and understanding of TUR; and municipal integration projects that foster implementation and incorporation of TUR/P2 strategies into local municipal activities and functions. As of Fall 2001, 51 projects have been funded. These projects serve as educational tools and models for citizens, local government, and businesses interested in reducing toxics. A listing of new projects and many of the past projects and products are featured on TURI's Community website at http://www.turi.org/community. The 2002 round of projects has begun, with 6 grantees and their partners receiving an October day of training from the TURN Program Manager, Eileen Gunn. The session included a presentation by Dr. Ted Schlettler on chemical toxicology and Dr. Michael Ellenbecker on health and safety assessment training featuring the TURI software, P2Oasys.
