The Air Quality Forum is a Mid-America Regional Council policy and programming committee comprised of local elected officials, air quality and transportation agency personnel, and business and community group representatives. The Air Quality Forum reviews regional air quality issues and makes policy recommendations regarding those issues to the MARC Board of Directors and the states of Kansas and Missouri. Applications are being accepted online.

Additionally, the Air Quality Forum serves as MARC’s designated committee to review and make recommendations for projects funded through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program. The goal of the committee is to support and fund projects that will have a positive impact on air quality in the Kansas City region and mitigate congestion when possible.
