Description:

This NOFO solicits applications to enable more low-income, disadvantaged, and Tribal kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) schools and/or school districts across rural, suburban, and/or urban areas to monitor and reduce GHG emissions and indoor air pollutants through the development and adoption of comprehensive indoor air quality (IAQ) management plans consistent with EPA’s IAQ Tools for Schools Action Kit and Framework, Energy Savings Plus Health Guidance, Preventive Maintenance Guidance, and other EPA recommended IAQ best practices.

All project areas should:

  • Reduce GHG emissions and comprehensive indoor air risks in K-12 schools and school districts in low-income, disadvantaged, and Tribal communities.

  • Increase low-income, disadvantaged, and Tribal K-12 school and school district facility managers’, health officers’, and key decision makers’ awareness of the scientifically validated IAQ interventions that provide the most educational and health benefits at reasonable cost (and with the best energy efficiency/GHG emission reductions), and the most practical ways to implement those interventions as part of a K-12 school or school district’s comprehensive IAQ management plan.
