STATUS: The application period is currently CLOSED for the Community Air Protection Incentives Program.
The State Legislature set aside funds for air quality improvement projects in communities most impacted by air pollution and to accompany AB 617 Community Air Monitoring efforts. This funding is being implemented through the Community Air Protection (CAP) Incentives 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.
Beginning in 2018, the Sac Metro Air District has received a total of $22 million for the Community Air Protection Incentives program. These funds have helped expand the District's current
Carl Moyer (Moyer) Program and the Goods Movement Emission Reduction (Prop 1B) 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. In addition to Moyer and Prop 1B projects, CAP incentives are available to support stationary, area, and other mobile source projects identified in the Community Air Protection Guidelines. Currently, these include projects that reduce air pollution at hexavalent chromium plating facilities and schools. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) and local air districts are working to expand the CAP Incentives Program by including additional stationary source categories and community-identified project categories in future guidelines.
The Sac Metro Air District will continue the success of the program with its fourth year of funding. The 2022-2023 CAP Incentives Program will include over $7 million in funding for projects that reduce air pollution in the Florin-South Sacramento Community and other disadvantaged communities in Sacramento County. Projects must have community support and meet identified community needs for air pollution reduction
Eligible categories are listed below:
Applications must include all requirements outlined in both the CAPI and Carl Moyer Program guidelines. The Sac Metro Air District conducted several surveys and workshops with the community to determine local priorities for funding. While this process is ongoing and will include future projects not currently available, community priorities for this funding are:
