Untouched Funds

Untouched Benefits for Healthy Schools

by | Aug 28, 2023

It’s not too late!

Did you see the recent New York Times article from August 28, 2023?


Covid Closed the Nation’s Schools. Cleaner Air Can Keep Them Open 

“It’s a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fix decades of neglect of our school building infrastructure,” said Joseph Allen, director of the Healthy Buildings program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.


Schoolchildren are heading back to classrooms by the tens of millions now, yet much of the funding for such improvements is sitting untouched in most states.”

The article continues…

“Among the reasons: a lack of clear federal guidance on cleaning indoor air, no senior administration official designated to oversee such a campaign, few experts to help the schools spend the funds wisely, supply chain delays for new equipment, and insufficient staff to maintain improvements that are made.”

The bulk of the article established the science and statistics of cleaner air in schools and the numbers don’t lie. If you are reading this, you already believe in the value of clean air.

So what can schools do? How can they still take advantage of these untouched benefits?
