Program Highlights:

The Navajo Nation used SIRG funding to radon test Head Start facilities, tribal buildings, institutions, public schools, daycare, health care centers, and private residences. This program also distributed information about radon-resistant new construction and the health risks associated with radon. Finally, these funds were used to provide hundreds of radon test kits to the Navajo Birth Cohort Study, an epidemiologic study of pregnancy and neonatal outcomes in a uranium-exposed population.
