Services Provided: The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety strives to enhance the health and safety of all children exposed to hazards associated with agricultural work and rural environments.

The National Children's Center receives funding from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. In 2008, the center received a five-year, $4.6 million competitive grant to expand its initiatives related to injury prevention on farms. The project period runs through September 2013.

The projects funded cover a variety of research, education, intervention, prevention, translation and outreach to enhance the health and safety of children exposed to hazards associated with agricultural work and rural environments. The funding allows the Center to provide a wide range of services related to children and adolescents living in rural areas and working in agricultural environments.

The National Children’s Center staff has advanced training in injury prevention, health promotion, agricultural safety, and related topics.
