Salt Lake City – The Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR) has opened the 2014 UCAIR grants cycle. Applications will be accepted http://www.ucair.org/grants-loans/">online Aug. 1- Oct. 1.
Private sector companies, government entities, educational institutions and individuals are eligible to apply.
The goal of UCAIR’s grants program is to provide funding and support to companies and organizations with ideas and initiatives to reduce emissions of pollutants that cause Utah’s poor air quality, but lack the resources for implementation. Grants can be used to promote investment in emission-reducing technology, lower emission vehicles, energy efficiency and other proven methods for reducing or eliminating emissions. The program also encourages creative thinking and promotes the development of educational programs and new technology.
This is the second year of the UCAIR grants program. Since 2013, UCAIR has awarded more than $350,000 in grants to 13 organizations for funding education, energy, transportation and home retrofit projects to improve air quality.
“UCAIR’s primary focus is educating, encouraging and empowering every Utahn to take meaningful action to improve Utah’s air quality,” said UCAIR executive director Ted Wilson. “We know that investing in the latest energy-efficient technology and educational programs can come at a significant cost. It is our goal through the UCAIR grants program to empower organizations and individuals to take actionable steps to improve Utah’s air quality.”
Organizations selected to receive UCAIR grant funding will be chosen based on the measureable impact their program or project would provide toward reducing emissions at home, in the community and at work.
