Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Air Quality Campaign

We develop and implement science-based solutions to reduce emissions and improve the air we breathe. Whether presenting innovative ideas to the legislature’s Clean Air Caucus or collaborating with local groups to encourage individual changes, we champion solutions that focus on our biggest emitters — transportation, area sources, and industry.

Working with regulators and legislators on both sides of the aisle, we help to create and implement policy solutions that reduce emissions. We collaborate with the Utah Division of Air Quality to provide feedback on realistic plans for emission reductions across all sectors and to hold polluters accountable. Through the legislative and regulatory process, we keep in mind that one-size-fits-all solutions won’t solve the problem or help every community, and work with a broad range of stakeholders to bring positive, lasting change.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

HEAL Utah harnesses the power of grassroots advocacy to address some of the most important environmental issues facing Utah today. HEAL strives to protect Utah's air, water, and land, ensuring that our state does not serve as an enabler for a toxic economy.

HEAL attends regulatory and legislative meetings where critical decisions are being made. We research solutions and pitch them to state leaders and other coalition partners. We pore over obscure documents and translate technical jargon into actionable information. We work with the media to get the important issues covered and we attend community events to speak to the public about clean air, renewables, and nuclear issues.

With years of grassroots organizing and policy experience, HEAL is uniquely positioned to monitor important environmental decisions, translate complex proceedings for the general public, and work with state leaders to achieve the best outcome to protect our health and environment.
