Community Health Protection Program

Updated 6/21/2021

Learn about the Air District’s Community Health Protection Program to implement Assembly Bill 617.

The Air District is excited to expand our robust efforts to reduce community exposure to air pollutants. The Community Health Protection Program works with Bay Area communities to plan and implement Assembly Bill 617 (C. Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017). This collaborative initiative will employ proven and innovative strategies to improve community health by reducing exposure to air pollutants in neighborhoods most impacted by air pollution.

Air District staff are working closely with the California Air Resources Board, other local air districts, community groups, community members, environmental organizations, regulated industries, and other key stakeholders to reduce harmful air pollutants. Through the Community Health Protection Program, we are working together to ensure that everyone benefits from our air quality efforts, especially those who live in areas of the San Francisco Bay Area most impacted by air pollution. We welcome and encourage your participation in this effort.

Community Health Protection Grant Program

The Air District is now offering community readiness or emission reduction grants as part of the Community Health Protection Grant Program.
