Community Air Monitoring

Clean Air is one of nine organizations statewide which is currently running a Community Air Monitoring Capacity-Building Program funded by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Environmental Justice Office. Click here to read the full press release from NYS DEC.

At present, we are still working to set up our program, but we plan to recruit and train a cohort of community leaders to host Purple Air Monitors at their homes, schools, churches, community centers or businesses, and run neighborhood-level community air monitoring programs. Click here to apply to be a Community Leader/be a host site, or to sign up to learn more – later this year we will hold an introductory meeting for our initial cohort.
