CLEARING THE AIR:
Air Quality Refresher & Resources for
SWPA Local Governments

Do you want to understand air quality in a way that will help you better serve your community? Having a hard time finding relevant resources, including funding opportunities? Check out GASP's new resource for local governments! 

GASP staff will also be facilitating in-person or virtual workshops throughout Southwestern PA. Contact info@gasp-pgh.org to learn more about hosting or attending a workshop.

What should local elected officials and municipal staff know about air quality to best serve their communities?

Local government officials and staff are invited to join our free Clearing the Air Workshops. Are you a governmental or community organization in SWPA? We're looking for additional partners to co-host workshops.

Once installed, monitor data is available on the real-time map.
