The EPA is teaming up with the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition to help homeowners clean up the air indoors.
“This area of South Park and Georgetown have some of the worst air quality anywhere in the city. Also higher rates of asthma (than) anywhere in the city,” said James Rasmussen, coordinator for the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition.
He said back in July the nonprofit entered into a cooperative agreement with the federal agency, which contributed $120,000 for the cause.
The money will go toward in-home air quality assessments for residents primarily in South Park and Georgetown.
