Local efforts... Diverse people... Statewide impacts
Ecology estimates more than 1,000 premature deaths and hundreds of millions of dollars in societal costs are attributable to air pollution each year in Washington State. The Air Quality Program is on the frontline of protecting residents from these health concerns and mitigating the effects of climate change. Much of that work will be carried out by the $62 million the program will pass-through to local governments, clean air agencies, and not-for-profit partners during the current biennium.
Join a team of committed professionals working together to protect and enhance Washington's air quality. This a great opportunity to help make "on the ground" projects happen.
