SLO County APCD has been operating our Grant Program since 1997. In that time, we have infused over $21.1 million dollars into our local economy to help businesses modernize their equipment and comply early with State emission regulation. These dollars have funded the reduction of over 2,882 tons of smog forming pollutants.
The California Air Resources Board has released the 2017-2018 Grant Guidelines for California Assembly Bill 617 - Community Air Grants Program. AB 617 seeks to ensure that all Californians benefit equitably from our State's air quality and climate efforts, especially those who live in the areas of California most severely impacted by air pollution.
The grant funding is provided by Assembly Bill (AB) 617 and AB 134 with under-served areas in our county being the focus. Eligible projects for this funding include but are not limited to the replacement of diesel equipment, including heavy-duty on-road vehicles (transit, waste haulers, and heavy-duty trucks), agricultural tractors and irrigation engines, and construction equipment.
