Improving air quality in overburdened communities grants

We're working to improve air quality in Washington communities that are historically overburdened with health, social, and environmental inequities and are highly impacted by criteria air pollution, such as ozone and fine particles. Reducing criteria air pollution will improve people's health.

We will be offering a new grant opportunity for organizations serving 16 overburdened communities and Tribes that opt in, to engage with people in their community, identifying and developing projects that reduce criteria air pollution.

Help us design the grant program. We're holding three opportunities to tell us your ideas:
