Strategies:

  • Endorse the air quality initiative being lead by The Heinz Endowments, the Breathe Project, and its expansion to embrace the Power of 32 region.
  • Conduct a review of the agencies that have jurisdiction for air quality in the Power of 32 region, what they do, degree of cooperation amongst them, and gaps that point to need for coordination.
  • Work to connect regional air quality programs, share best practices and coordinate efforts

Lead Organization:

The Heinz Endowments

"As a public education tool, the Emission Sources Map will help communities pay more attention to the performance of local industrial and power plants, and how new proposed regulations particularly at the federal levelmight be affecting them."

– Caren Glotfelty, former Senior Program Director for Environmental Projects at Heinz Endowments
