Addressing Residential Wood and Coal Smoke in Tribal Communities

These webinars are collaborations between U.S. EPA Region 9 and the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP). Experienced presenters will share their knowledge in reducing the effects of residential wood and coal smoke and in conducting successful IAQ outreach in the tribal communities they serve.
