If you live, work, or volunteer in the East Oakland AB 617 area and would like to help improve your community’s air and quality of life, you may be eligible to join a Community Steering Committee for Assembly Bill 617 implementation efforts. The Steering Committee will guide the process of developing a Community Emissions Reduction Plan to address air quality and environmental justice issues in East Oakland. Becoming a Steering Committee member will require training, participation, and attendance at regular Steering Committee meetings. The Air District's aim is to make these meetings as inclusive of the community as possible. Language interpretation is available for any participant or member upon request for any upcoming CERP Steering Committee meetings.

To apply, you must complete and submit the Application Form (Formulario De Aplicación) (指導委員會申請) (بخش 1- درخواست «کمیته راهبری»). Applicants will be selected as needed.

The Air District is continuing existing efforts to reduce air pollution and exposures in impacted communities through the state’s Community Air Protection Program, also known as Assembly Bill 617. This effort focuses on community-based emissions reductions in neighborhoods most disproportionately impacted by air pollution.

In February 2022, the California Air Resources Board voted in support of the Air District's partnering with the East Oakland community to conduct a Community Emissions Reduction Plan, or CERP, process. The community-based steering committee is responsible for developing a CERP, which will serve as a blueprint for improving air quality in East Oakland.

Why East Oakland?

East Oakland was selected amongst high priority communities in the Bay Area due to longstanding air quality challenges, environmental justice issues, and health inequities. East Oakland organizations have partnered with the Air District to build community capacity, increase understanding of local air pollution and environmental justice issues, and bring together cross-agency partnerships necessary for improving environmental health and local air quality improvement.

The Air District is partnering with Communities for a Better Environment and other community-based organizations to create a community-based Steering Committee to develop the East Oakland AB 617 Community Emissions Reduction Plan.
