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 a counterpart effort to the AB 617 Community Air Protection Blue Print and designated AB617 South Sacramento/Florin Air Monitoring Community.
The Sac Metro Air District has received a total of $16 Million for the Community Air Protection Incentive program. The first year(2018-2019), expanded the District's current
Carl Moyer Program and the Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program. Both these programs help public agencies and businesses purchase less polluting heavy duty engines and equipment, such as, trucks, buses, trains, off-road equipment and zero-emission charging stations. For the second year(2019-2020), the
Community Air Protection Guidelines allowed incentives for projects that reduce air pollution at hexavalent chromium plating facilities and schools. For this next year, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is working to include more project type options for stationary air pollution sources and guidelines for Community Emission Reduction Program (CERP) projects.
