Please note that before work commences on your alt fuel project, you must obtain all required land use permits from agencies needed to install and operate the installation. The installation must comply with all applicable rules and regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act. A copy of the finalized building permit must be provided to APCD before the grant project is paid.
Community Air Protection Program (AB617)
The APCD Board has authorized additional grant funding from 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.
Eligible projects for this funding, which will focus on zero emission projects in under-served areas in our county, will be administered using the Carl Moyer grant program guidelines and include, but are not limited to EV and natural gas infrastructure, replacement of diesel equipment such as including heavy-duty on-road vehicles (transit, waste haulers, and heavy-duty trucks), agricultural tractors and irrigation engines, construction equipment and transit and school buses.
