  The U.S. EPA's Environmental Justice program announced it is providing $120,000 to Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment for a local partnership to improve air quality in Summit County.   The bulk of the money will go to a program intended to reduce exposure to wood smoke pollution, by helping low and moderate-income residents obtain sources of heat cleaner and healthier than wood-burning stoves.   Jonny Vasic, Executive Director for the UPHE and Shellie Barrus, Executive Director for Summit County Habitat for Humanity talk about the program and how individuals can qualify and apply for funding.
