Home Air Filtration Program and Projects

The Air District is embarking on several new projects that provide home air filtration units to individuals most vulnerable to wildfire smoke and air pollution. Projects will focus on low-income individuals on Medi-Cal who have been diagnosed with severe asthma or other respiratory conditions. 

The Air District is partnering with Regional Asthma Management and Prevention, or RAMP, a project of the Public Health Institute, to provide portable air filtration units to low-income residents diagnosed with poorly controlled asthma who are enrolled in California’s Asthma Mitigation Project (AMP) to receive in-home asthma assessments and mitigation.

Through this partnership, the Air District is able to reach the most vulnerable populations to ensure they not only have access to these air filtration units - a critical tool for mitigating wildfire smoke impacts - but also that they receive guidance about how to optimally place, use, and maintain the units through this and future wildfire seasons.

This program is focused on Medi-Cal patients, as well as undocumented adults who are not otherwise qualified for Medi-Cal, who have poorly controlled asthma. Eligible clients must be enrolled in the California AMP and have a medical diagnosis of moderate to severe or poorly controlled asthma (as determined by an asthma-related emergency department visit or hospitalization, two sick or urgent care asthma-related visits in the past 12 months, or a score of 19 or lower on the Asthma Control Test), or receive a referral from a licensed physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. Each home visiting program may have additional eligibility and enrollment requirements.

Air filtration units are being distributed  through seven AMP-affiliated Bay Area in-home visiting programs that provide culturally and linguistically appropriate asthma in-home visits, care, education, and mitigation:

  • Alameda County Department of Public Health
  • Roots Community Health Center
  • Contra Costa Health Services
  • LifeLong Medical Care
  • San Mateo County Family Health Services
  • Santa Rosa Community Health Centers
  • Breathe California
