Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR)
Grants to Utah nonprofit organizations, for-profits, and public agencies to improve air quality within the state. A letter of inquiry is required prior to submission of a full application. Funding is intended for the implementation of new and creative ideas to reduce emissions of criteria pollutants.
Projects that target innovative emissions-reduction strategies and promote community involvement and awareness in implementing these strategies, on a state-wide or local level are also encouraged. However, projects in this area should yield actual emissions reductions. Efforts to advance community understanding of air pollution but without ties to specific emissions reductions will be viewed less favorably.
This year the UCAIR Grant Committee has decided to solicit grant proposals in two main categories, technical and social sciences. Technical grants should be based on solid metrics that demonstrate actual emissions reductions. Grants submitted in the social sciences category should not merely be public education programs, but include research or generate new resources for citizens and municipalities regarding air quality.
Technical Grants – Targeted Areas:
- Reduction of emissions from area sources, including residential homes and commercial sources such as, dry cleaners, print shops, gas stations, and auto body paint shops
- Transition of small businesses and homeowners currently using 2-stroke engines to use of 4- stroke or electric engines
- Creating strategies to encourage employers and individuals to use telecommuting techniques and other methods to get vehicles off the road, particularly during the inversion season
- Programs utilizing emerging technologies that result in measurable emissions reductions
Social andBehavioral Science Grants – Targeted Areas:
- Research into the specific impacts of air quality on health, economy and long-term development statewide or along the Wasatch Front
- Development of a community communication toolkit that will help facilitate productive and nonconfrontational conversations among community members on air quality issues
- Creation of materials and resources for local governments and municipalities to utilize in urban planning activities, with air quality as a priority
UCAIR welcomes partner organizations who share its commitment. UCAIR encourages partners to combine forces and collaborate on projects to further their program goals and UCAIR’s collective goal. Special consideration will be given to projects with innovative alliances.

It is anticipated projects will be of one-year duration.
