Community Air Protection (CAP) Incentives Program
In July of 2017, the California Assembly and Senate passed AB 617 directing the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to develop the Community Air Protection Program (CAPP). The Program’s focus is to reduce exposure in communities most impacted by air pollution and uses a variety of strategies including community-level monitoring, uniform emission reporting across the State, stronger regulation of pollution sources and incentives for both mobile and stationary sources. To support AB 617 requirements, the Legislature has appropriated incentive funding, Community Air Protection (CAP) Incentives, to be administered by air districts in partnership with local communities, to support early actions to address localized air pollution. The District will work collaboratively with CARB and actively engage with members of impacted communities in Placer County to create a community-focused action framework to address emission impacts, respond to concerns, improve air quality, and reduce exposure to criteria air pollutants and toxic air contaminants.
