Example Eligible IAQ Activities:
Fire Damage, Construction, Storm Remediation.
- 5% of years's allocation for ICDBG funding.
- Maximum Grant: $450,000 ($900,000 for project responding to Presidentially-declared emergencies)
In 2013, the Spokane Tribe Air Quality Program partnered with both the Spokane Water and Fish Program and Planning Department to apply for an ICDBG Imminent Threat Grant. This $450,000 grant funded the mitigation of air-based radon contamination in 21 homes and remediated radon contamination in the tribe's water system, through the installation of multiple filtration systems.
