Community Air Protection Program Incentives


The state Legislature set aside funds for air quality improvement projects to accompany AB 617 Community Air Monitoring efforts. This funding is being implemented through the Community Air Protection (CAP) Incentive Program, which is a separate but parallel effort to the AB617 Community Air Protection Blue Print. The Sac Metro Air District (District) has received a total of $16 Million for this program. The first cycle expanded on the District's current Carl Moyer Program and the Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program which funds the incremental cost of cleaner than required heavy duty engines and equipment including trucks, buses, trains, off-road equipment and infrastructure.  The second cycle of the Community Air Protection Guidelines was expanded to include more opportunities to reduce air pollution at schools and stationary sources. 


The District is funding projects that provide timely emission reductions, decrease public exposure to air pollution and have community support. Funding priority is given to projects that impact the South Sacramento Florin Air Monitoring Community, the other nine Sacramento communities identified through the Community Air Protection process,  disadvantaged communities (DAC) and low-income areas identified by Cal Enviro Screen 3.0 and AB1550. 

The District is also administering projects on behalf of Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District (AQMD). Funding priority for Yolo-Solano projects will go to areas identified as disadvantaged communities or low-income areas identified by  Cal Enviro Screen 3.0 and AB1550.
