In response to Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (C. Garcia, 2017), the California Air Resources Board (CARB) established the Community Air Protection Program (Program). The Program's mission is to reduce pollution exposure in communities based on environmental, health and socioeconomic information. This first-of-its-kind statewide effort will require community air monitoring, community emission reduction plans, and incentive funding to deploy the cleanest technologies in the most impacted areas. The Air Pollution Control District (District) is leading efforts to implement the Program in San Diego County.
More information about the program can be found on the CARB Community Air Protection Program webpage.
