Most of SLO County APCD's funding comes from fees paid by businesses and industries which produce air pollution and from an air quality fee for vehicles registered in San Luis Obispo County. Other funding sources include state and federal grants and some property taxes. The APCD does not ordinarily receive funding from city or county general funds. 

The District operates on the governmental fiscal cycle that begins on July 1 of each year and ends on June 30.

The Fiscal Plan evaluates historical and projected future APCD expenditures and revenue in the context of the adopted Strategic Action Plan (SAP) and current fiscal constraints.
