Grant Program Helps Massachusetts Organizations Reduce Toxic Chemical Use

TURI has had a robust grants program for decades, working diligently to assist large and small companies, as well as community groups and academic researchers, achieve meaningful reductions in the use of toxic chemicals.

This work is done through implementation of TUR techniques, education about the health impacts of toxics and development of safer alternatives.

Minimizing the use of toxic chemicals is the most effective means of protecting workers and the public and can lead to meaningful cost savings. In addition, exposure to toxic chemicals contributes to rates of chronic illnesses; these underlying conditions put people more at risk during outbreaks such as COVID-19.
