Grants to USA nonprofits, government agencies, cancer centers, hospitals, and health centers in eligible states for screening, referral, and education services related to radiogenic diseases. Funding is also intended to facilitate the documentation of radiation exposure claims. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

Only the organizations located in the high-impact states cited in the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (42 U.S.C. 2210 and Public Law 106-245); i.e., Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming are eligible to apply.

The purpose of this program is to inform and educate the public about services offered through the RESEP program; disseminate information on radiogenic diseases and the importance of early detection; screen eligible individuals for cancer and other radiogenic diseases; provide appropriate referrals for medical treatment; and facilitate putative applicants in the documentation of Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) claims.

This program offers grants to states, local governments and other eligible organizations to initiate and support programs for: individual cancer screening; appropriate referrals for medical treatment of individuals screened; public information development and dissemination; and the facilitating putative applicants in the documentation of RECA claims to aid the thousands of individuals adversely affected by the mining, transport and processing of uranium, and the testing of nuclear weapons for the nation’s weapons arsenal. RESEP encourages and supports appropriate health care organizations to improve the knowledge base and health status of adversely affected persons.

Pursuant to the RECA Amendment of 2000, P.L. 106-245, Section 8, RECA will sunset 22 years after the date of the enactment on July 9, 2022, at which time the Department of Justice will cease accepting all RECA claims2,3. Prior to the July 9, 2022 deadline, RESEP recipients will prioritize the provision of outreach and education of RESEP services in an effort to screen as many eligible individuals and devote resources to support the facilitation and filing of RECA claims. After the July 9, 2022 deadline, RESEP recipients will focus on public education and information dissemination on radiogenic diseases; screening eligible individuals for cancer and other radiogenic diseases; and provide appropriate referrals for medical treatment.
