Submit Your Application to Reduce Public Exposure to Indoor Pollutants

EPA has recently announced the availability of funds through a regional request of applications. Eligible entities will gain funding for projects to conduct demonstrations, trainings, education and/or outreach activities to reduce exposure to indoor air contaminants and yield measurable environmental outcomes primarily in homes and schools. The projects will be carried out at the regional, state or local level within the 10 EPA Regions.

All Applications are Required to:

  • Yield results that can be tracked, evaluated and reported;
  • Clearly articulate a plan to produce results and/or benefits on a local to Regional scale, and identify the specific EPA Region where the work is to be performed; and
  • Align with EPA strategic goals, objectives and outputs.

Current Indoor Air Quality Focus Areas:

EPA’s Regional Indoor Environments grants aim to reduce exposures and risks from indoor air pollutants in the following four focus areas:

  1. Integrated approaches for reducing exposures and risks in homes.
  2. Integrated approaches to promoting healthy indoor environments in schools and associated early-learning environments.
  3. Reducing exposures to indoor asthma triggers.
  4. Reducing exposure to radon.
