We would appreciate your assistance getting the word out to nonprofit organizations and community groups in your district about a new program focused on community-based air quality monitoring.



The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is currently accepting applications for a partnership opportunity that will enable selected community groups or interested citizens to conduct local air monitoring. Applications for this program, which focuses on toxic air pollution, must be postmarked or emailed by midnight, May 24, 2012. To provide additional information and answer questions regarding this partnership opportunity, DEC will be holding a teleconference on Wednesday, May 16, 3:30 - 4:30 pm.



Through funding provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), DEC has launched the Community Air Screen Program, a community-based screening program for toxic air pollutants that provides sampling equipment, training, and specific technical assistance to non-profits, neighborhood and community groups, and individuals concerned with the potential impact of toxic air pollutants on their communities. For more details and a copy of the application, please visit http://www.dec.ny.gov/public/81629.html.



Those interested in learning more or who have questions about the program are welcome to participate in a teleconference focused on DEC's new Community Air Screen Program.
