Grants to Utah nonprofit, for-profit, public-sector, and private-sector organizations to improve air quality within the State. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for the implementation of original and creative ideas to reduce emissions of criteria pollutants.

The UCAIR Grant Selection Committee is requesting applications for projects addressing any of the four areas listed below:

  • 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
  • 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
  • Reduction of emissions in underserved areas:
    • Socioeconomically disadvantaged communities
    • Areas of opportunity (geographic, industry, sector) that have not received adequate financial support

Grant funds must be used to reduce the criteria pollutants that degrade Utah’s air quality, either directly or through longer-term effects related to social change.

Funding will be prioritized by the amount of actual emissions reduction anticipated from the projects.Projects that can be replicated to create additional emissions reductions will be given priority for funding. UCAIR encourages partners to combine forces and collaborate on projects to further their program goals and collective goals. Special consideration will be given to projects with innovative alliances.
