Facing the Challenge of Air Quality Head On - GOED approves funds to support environmental empowerment & education campaign

 SALT LAKE CITY— Taking a step toward reaching Utah’s air quality goals, the GOED board approved a $500,000 Economic Opportunity Grant as seed capital to facilitate and implement an air quality campaign. The first component of the larger air quality initiative is a media campaign entitled “Let’s Clear the Air.” The effort will help residents and business leaders make better decisions in their actions that affect our air quality...

...Sponsored by Envision Utah and Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR), the air quality campaign will inform the public about the many ways each individual, community and business can contribute to better air quality. Utah meets the federal standards on air quality on average about 95 percent of the time, but decision makers want to move that number closer to 100 percent.
