School Radon & Support System Grants
During the 2016-17 school year, 16 school districts in Iowa voluntarily participated in the School Radon Training & Support System (SRTSS) Expansion Project. They each received a matching grant of $1000 toward training and test kits, as well as access to a $6000 mitigation assistance fund to be shared as needed.
This grant funding was received by Energy Association of Iowa Schools (EAIS) from the Iowa Cancer Consortium (ICC) and Iowa Department of Public Health.
EAIS will be hearing from ICC by mid-August regarding funding for FY 2018, which would expand the number of participating schools to 21. Let’s keep our collective fingers crossed! Please contact Julie Weisshaar for more information.
