• Address one or more of the following EPA Indoor Environments Division program priority areas: radon, indoor environmental asthma triggers, multiple indoor air quality contaminants.
Applicants may submit multiple applications addressing different program priority areas (e.g., radon, indoor environmental asthma triggers, and indoor air contaminants). However, applicants may not submit multiple applications addressing the same program priority area.
Deadline: Feb. 17, 2017

The estimated amount of funding available to address the following EPA Indoor Environments Division program priority areas is anticipated to be divided as follows, and subject to change. The information is being provided for informational purposes only:
1. Radon (40%).
2. Indoor environmental asthma triggers (40%).
3. Multiple indoor air quality contaminants (20%).
