EPA grant to fund indoor air program for Las Vegas schools

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is awarding a little more than $32,000 to the University of Tulsa to help Las Vegas-area schools develop an indoor air quality management program.

EPA officials say the funds will go toward moisture and mold control; heating, ventilation and air conditioning maintenance; pest management; and cleaning and maintenance.

EPA Office of Air and Radiation official Gina McCarthy says the grant is part of $1.2 million distributed to 32 state, local, tribal and nonprofit entities to reduce contaminants such as radon and irritants that cause asthma in classes, community facilities and homes.
