Clean Air for Schools Program – Colorado CDPHE

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s (CDPHE) Clean Air for Schools program provides free high-efficiency particulate air filter portable air cleaners (HEPA PACs) and associated supplies to K-12 schools (public, private, charter, parochial, facility, and Tribal schools) and licensed early childhood education (ECE) providers (licensed daycares, child care facilities, preschools, and HeadStart programs). Schools should apply by April 30 to ensure timely delivery of the air cleaners.

The program’s goal is to improve schools’ indoor air quality as a mitigation measure for exposure to respiratory viruses such as COVID-19, flu, and RSV, as well as other pollutants and pathogens that contribute to asthma, allergies, and other chronic respiratory illnesses.

CDPHE contracted with Carrier West, the Colorado-based partner of Carrier Corporation, to distribute HEPA portable air cleaners and associated supplies, such as replacement HEPA filters, to schools throughout Colorado. Delivery, installation, and follow-up support are included at no cost to schools. Carrier West will perform phone and email outreach to schools directly on behalf of the program.

Indoor air quality monitors for K-12 schools
Through a partnership with the University of Colorado Boulder, certain participating K-12 schools have the opportunity to receive indoor air quality monitoring systems at no cost. The monitors will provide real-time information on key health-relevant indoor air pollutants to help building managers and school staff understand and manage a healthy indoor environment for all members of the school community
