CARB includes more California disadvantaged communities in statewide Community Air Protection Program

California’s relentless fight for clean air continues as the California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved the addition of three new disadvantaged communities to the Community Air Protection Program. These diverse, urban and rural areas will be able to put into practice lessons learned in the community approach developed under AB 617 over the past three years.

Under the Community Air Protection Program, community members work with local air districts to conduct air monitoring and prepare community emissions reduction programs. These include a mix of strategies to reduce air pollution or exposure at the community level, including new regulations, targeted incentive funding, enhanced enforcement, and coordinating efforts with other agencies based on community priorities.

Arvin – Lamont in the San Joaquin Valley Air District, and South Los Angeles in the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) will be new communities with air monitoring and Emissions Reduction Programs. Richmond – San Pablo, one of the original 10 communities in the program, will move forward to develop a Community Emission Reduction Program based on its previous air monitoring plan.

For more information, please read the eblast and visit CARB’s page for the Community Air Protection Program.
