EPA's IAQ Tools for Schools guidance and Action Kit offer several low-cost/no-cost tips for addressing problems to improve a building's IAQ. However, many more expensive improvements are difficult to finance from the existing school budget. For tips on how to secure funding for projects associated with the identification, resolution, and prevention of IAQ problems, see www.epa.gov/iaq-schools/indoor-air-quality-tools-schools-preventive-maintenance-guidance-documents#making.
In addition, many schools and districts have benefited from school-business partnerships through which local businesses donate equipment, supplies, or other services that schools need for building renovation projects to improve IAQ.
