SacMetro AQMD offers a variety of incentive programs for residents, businesses and public agencies to improve air quality in the Sacramento region. See details below about the Wood Stove / Fireplace Change Out Program; Our Community CarShare; Targeted Green Infrastructure Fund; along with many incentives to help public and private fleets reduce emissions.
For fleets, SacMetro AQMD's Low-Emission Vehicle Program can help reduce the cost of lower emission engines in new on-road and off-road tractors, buses, backhoes and harvesters; repowering, rebuilding or retrofitting diesel equipment with cleaner engines or other low-emission technology. If you operate heavy-duty vehicles or mobile off-road equipment in the Sacramento Federal Ozone Nonattainment Area (SFNA) then you could be eligible. The SFNA includes all of Sacramento and Yolo counties and portions of El Dorado, Placer, Sutter and Solano counties.
If you've received funding from one of the SacMetro AQMD grant programs, we're asking you to participate in a short customer service survey. The survey addresses all aspects of the grant program from application submission through your receipt of the grant payment. Tell us what we're doing well, and let us know where we need to improve . We appreciate your feedback. Thank you for your participation.
The Wood Stove Change-Out Program provides funding for the replacement of older, polluting fireplaces and wood stoves with certified cleaner burning units. Environmental justice zones receive slightly more funding than non-environmental justice zones.
