Request for Applications (RFA): “National Indoor Environments Program: Reducing Public Exposure to Indoor Pollutants”
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Air and Radiation (OAR), Indoor Environments Division (IED) has posted a new RFA (EPA-OAR-ORIA-17-02) www.epa.gov/grants/air-grants-and-funding, and www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=290725.
IED’s priorities include, yet are not limited to, (1) radon, (2) indoor environmental asthma triggers, and (3) multiple indoor air contaminants.
Examples of projects eligible for funding include those that result in (1) an increase in the number of homes and schools built with radon-reducing features, (2) an increase in the number of home visiting programs providing in-home asthma interventions by licensed providers in disproportionately affected communities, and (3) an increase in the number of homes, schools and office buildings with interventions that reduce exposure to multiple indoor air contaminants.
