Improving Tribal Indoor Air Quality
Tribal Healthy Homes Northwest
Tribal Healthy Homes Northwest is a coalition of American Indian and Alaska Natives from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. The coalition was formed in 2009, after tribes called attention to indoor air hazards in tribal housing - a largely unfunded, unaddressed but profound health risk.
