Community Air Protection Incentives Program

The Community Air Protection Incentives Program is a voluntary program that reduces emissions and exposure in the Bay Area’s most impacted communities by funding projects that upgrade or replace heavy-duty vehicles and equipment with cleaner technologies. 

Community Air Protection Incentives Year 5

  • Priority is given to projects that reduce emissions in the Bay Area’s communities most impacted by air pollution, including the AB 617 communities of West Oakland, Richmond-San Pablo, East Oakland, Bayview Hunters Point/Southeast San Francisco, and disadvantaged and low-income communities as designated by California Climate Investments. 
  • Focus is on the cleanest technologies available
  • Community participation will be relied on to inform program outreach and identify opportunities for new projects
