Each of the Bay Area’s nine counties is made up of smaller communities and neighborhoods with unique air quality concerns. The Air District is committed to adopting rules and policies that are fair and equitable to all residents, and to involving the many diverse communities and perspectives in the Bay Area into our work.
As a part of our community outreach program, the Air District organizes and facilitates opportunities for local residents to share and receive information about air quality-related topics. Through these meetings the District provides information and seeks input on pending regulations, clean air plans and strategies, or other issues of interest to a particular community. The community outreach program also works to support local clean air actions through grants, voluntary actions and education.
