13-1 Improving Assessment of Near-Road Exposure to Traffic Related Pollution

Status: 
Not Active
Number: 
RFA 13-1

RFA 13-1 solicits applications for studies to improve quantification of the relationship between on-road motor vehicle emissions, near-road pollutant concentrations, and human exposures for health studies. RFA 13-1 provides funding for 2- to 3- year studies.
