Clean Air For Schools

The Clean Air for Schools program with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) provides free HEPA portable air cleaners (HEPA PACs) to Colorado schools. Air cleaners can increase air circulation and filtration in classrooms, reducing airborne pathogens such as COVID-19 and indoor air pollutants. Evidence shows that clean air in classrooms can improve the health of school communities. Clean Air for Schools is funded by CDPHE in cooperation with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

These portable air cleaners are available at no charge to K-12 schools (i.e., public, private, charter, parochial, Tribal, and facility schools) and licensed early childhood education (ECE) providers (i.e., licensed daycares, child care facilities, preschools, and HeadStart Programs) throughout Colorado!

The CDPHE Clean Air For Schools program has now ended. Nearly 1600 Colorado K-12 Schools and licensed Early Education Providers enrolled in the program and their students, teachers and staff are now benefiting from cleaner, healthier air!
