Request a Grant Writer

Grants totaling $200,000 to reduce the public's exposure to indoor pollutants in the United States' regions. The overall goal of the grant is to improve public health through education and interventions. While the entire population is affected, children are especially vulnerable to the pollution in the environment and the foundation puts extra emphasis on programs that address issues pertaining to the school environment.

Problematic areas that the grant looks to improve are indoor air quality, and indoor environmental asthma triggers in schools. Awarded schools will be required to identify and remove harmful pollutants and chemicals from the school. Additionally, each school or school district must designate a program coordinator, develop maintenance checklists, and an organized walk through of the school building to identify hazards. Programs that address asthmatic issues can focus on either education and reduction or healthcare professional training. A goal of the program should include training people to educate and counsel asthmatics and their families.

Applicants are required to develop a system for measurable outcome of the implemented program. Results may be environmental, behavioral, health related or programmatic. At least one of the following results must be achieved; increased understanding of the environmental hazards, improved air quality or reduction of asthma triggers in homes, automobiles and schools, or other health benefits that may result.
