Get cleaner air at your child’s school (for FREE!)

Clean air denver

The worst of COVID-19 is (hopefully) behind us but our schools still have a long way to go in providing cleaner air for our students. Well, we recently came across a fantastic (free and already funded) program called “Clean Air for Schools Colorado.”

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s (CDPHE) Clean Air for Schools Colorado is aimed at improving indoor air quality in schools by providing grants for schools to install air purifiers, improve ventilation systems, and perform other measures to enhance the air quality. Poor indoor air quality aggravates some health conditions (asthma, allergies, respiratory viruses), which negatively impacts both students and staff.

 Clean Air for Schools program provides free high-efficiency particulate air filter portable air cleaners (HEPA PACs) and associated supplies to K-12 schools (public, private, charter, parochial, facility, and Tribal schools) and licensed early childhood education (ECE) providers (licensed daycares, child care facilities, preschools, and HeadStart programs). Schools should apply by March 31 to ensure timely delivery of the air cleaners.

The program’s goal is to improve schools’ indoor air quality as a mitigation measure for exposure to respiratory viruses such as COVID-19, flu, and RSV, as well as other pollutants and pathogens that contribute to asthma, allergies, and other chronic respiratory illnesses.
