Radon Awareness Act
For the past five years, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has generated radon awareness by providing test kits to local public health and non-profit organizations. This year MDH outdid previous efforts as they were able to distribute 8,250 short term radon test kits throughout Minnesota!
Using State Indoor Radon Grant (SIRG) funding from EPA, MDH shipped radon test kits and outreach materials to partner organizations in approximately half of the counties in the state. MDH partners then distributed the kits to local residents using the outreach materials to raise awareness in their communities. Partners were able to sell the test kits to generate revenue and cover their staff costs for this effort.
