The PAIR Program provides new portable air purifiers and indoor air monitoring systems to selected residences in the Portside area, at no cost to participants. Eligible households will also receive three extra filters for the air purifier, and a small one-time monetary stipend to partially reimburse participants for antipated electrical costs to run the new devices. The Portside area encompasses parts of Barrio Logan, Logan Heights, Sherman Heights, and National City neighborhoods, and is ranked within the top 15% of most polluted neighborhoods in California. The low-income area is particularly impacted by poor air quality being adjacent to and downwind of the industrialized waterfront, Port areas, and local freeways along San Diego Bay.

The PAIR Program is now accepting applications from residents within the Portside neighborhood, effective March 1, 2022. For more information on how to apply, please contact APCD's  PAIR Program Administrator, the Environmental Health Coalition (EHC) or call the PAIR Program Hotline at 619-603-7758.
