COLUMBIA, MD (March 14, 2022) — The National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) is pleased to announce the 2022 Indoor Air Quality Mini-Grants: Building Systems to Improve Indoor Air Quality, an exciting new funding opportunity to help communities build capacity and advance evidence-based efforts to improve health in indoor home environments by reducing exposures to common indoor air contaminants including radon, mold and moisture, dust mites, environmental tobacco smoke (secondhand smoke), pests, particulate matter, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), combustion byproducts (e.g., CO and NO2,), and other emerging IAQ issues.
Funding for this competitive solicitation is made possible through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
NCHH invites communities to apply for a bundled award of coaching and support over 18 months that includes on-call access to technical assistance from a network of national experts, opportunities to engage in peer learning, and a $15,000 grant. We anticipate that a minimum of three communities will be selected. Eligible applicants include local, regional, or state nonprofit and community-based organizations and state, county, local, and tribal government agencies. Funding should be used to build capacity within a community and help communities achieve policy, practice, or systems change.
Online applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. ET, Tuesday, April 12, 2022.
