Program Highlights:

In 2017, the Hoonah Indian Association funded an indoor air quality assessment project through IGAP. They measured PM2.5 and CO levels in 65 homes. Through this study, they found that homes with wood stoves older than 20 years had higher PM2.5 levels than homes with younger wood stoves. They also identified a need for ventilation and weatherization improvements. [source]
