An indefinite delay has been imposed on the Health Study because funding for the Health Study was stricken from the Massachusetts State budget in July, 2019.


A severe shortfall in State revenue has forced the Massachusetts Governor and Legislature to drastically cut the funding for many programs. Regrettably, the DPH/BEHA Logan Health Study was one of the projects to receive zero funding. Although the amount needed ($150,000-$190,000) is comparatively very modest, the entire amount was slashed.

The most disappointing fact is that all the design and prep work had been done, and the interview process was about to begin. A major design breakthrough had occurred when the method of isolating responders to the neighborhood level, while insuring total privacy, was designed and tested.

Because the Health Study is so close to its interview stage, we continue to hope that the financing will be restored. Although the overall outlook for Massachusetts state revenue is bleak, we can only try to convince our law-makers of the tremendous value of investing in the Health Study at the next budget cycle.
