Air Pollution Monitoring for Communities

EPA awarded grants to six research organizations to work with local communities to explore data quality, durability and uses of low-cost air pollution sensor technology. These research projects will explore how scientific data can be effectively gathered and used by communities to learn about local air quality. These grants are funded through the Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program.

Request for Applications closing date: October 7, 2014
