The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is spending $1.2 million in grants to provide “asthma-friendly homes” training and to “educate the primary adults in an asthmatic child’s life.”

The agency highlighted three grant recipients in press releases last week as part of a project announced earlier this year to provide 32 grants to state and local governments and non-profit organizations. The funding is intended for demonstrations, training, education, and outreach activities to “reduce exposure to indoor air contaminants, primarily in homes and schools.”

“The goal of the program is to educate the primary adults in an asthmatic child’s life,” the EPA said. “To accomplish this goal, adults will be educated on ways to provide an asthma-friendly home, school, children and medical care environments.”
