The Grand Portage Reservation is at the northeastern tip of Minnesota. The Air Quality Program has many ongoing projects in order to maintain healthy indoor and outdoor air. These projects include monitoring for regional haze and particulate matter, indoor air quality, invasive plant removal, public outreach, environmental education, alternative energy, and climate change.

Tribal Healthy Homes project targets indoor air quality

Grand Portage has changed a lot since this photo was taken in 1921. All of the homes pictured have long since been removed, replaced by newer homes that are now themselves seeing mold and other air quality issues affecting the health of our people.

Tribal Healthy Homes is a brand new program to improve air quality and the health of people living in your home or apartment. Funding is now available to identify mold and moisture problems, air quality and other health risks, and eliminate those problems from your home.
And Tribal Healthy Homes pays for all repairs done to your home! That’s right, there is no cost to participate, but you must contact us.

If your home has mold or other air quality issues you may qualify for this free program. Stuart Oberg, Grand Portage Air Quality Specialist, is waiting to hear from you. Projects will start the summer of 2008. To see if you qualify call Stuart at 475-2415 extension 35
or stop by Trust Lands at 27 Store Road.
