Our organization is excited to announce that Change the Air Foundation has formed a new advocacy alliance with another nonprofit organization, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
The IICRC is a global Standards Developing Organization (SDO), accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), as well as a credentialing body that certifies individuals in 20+ categories within the Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Industries. Their Government Affairs & Advocacy Department continuously advocates for accredited standards and certifications.
To help cultivate the newfound partnership, individuals from Change the Air and the IICRC traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with staff members from various Congressional offices and advocate for S.4742, the Military Housing Readiness Council Act. The bill would create a 17-member council that would advise the Department of Defense on the best practices and policies for solving the problems seen throughout military housing across the country. Our two organizations will continue to work together at the state level advocating for updated laws, regulations, and policies that help ensure the basic right of every person to breathe clean air in every home and building.
