Community Air Protection Incentive Funds
In response to Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (C. Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017), the California Governor and Legislature authorized funding to achieve emission reductions in the communities most impacted by air pollution. The District has implemented Year 1, 2, and 3 of this program, known as the Community Air Protection Incentive Funds or CAP Incentive Funds. A request for proposals for a fourth year of funding is expected to be released in Spring 2023.
