Air & Healthy Homes
Air & Healthy Homes Program
The Air and Healthy Homes program works with Tribal partners to address air quality and healthy homes issues in their communities. Rural communities face a range of air quality challenges. Common air quality concerns include indoor air quality in homes and schools, solid waste burning, smoke, road dust, and mold and moisture intrusion.
Tribal Air Quality
The Tribal Air Quality program works with communities to increase public awareness of air quality issues and to enhance Tribal capacity to address local air quality concerns. The program offers mini grants to fund locally-managed air quality projects and provides technical assistance and support in the development and implementation of air quality projects.
The Healthy Homes program provides education and tools to help residents improve their home environment by improving indoor air quality and reducing indoor air pollutants. In collaboration with local environmental departments, the Healthy Homes program also provides technical support, education and training and air monitoring equipment.
