Libby, Montana was the site of a vermiculite mining and processing operation for much


of the twentieth century.

Community-based health screening for asbestos-related abnormalities has been conducted in Libby under several programs beginning in 200 0. The program described in this NOFO builds upon previous programs and extends a program begun in 2011 under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

This program will provide screening, health education, and outreach services for residents and former residents of a geographic area subject to declared public health emergencies under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), such as residents of Libby and Troy, Montana.
