The Air  District will accept proposals for the Community Health Protection Grant Program beginning April 29 for up to $50,000 from community groups, neighborhood associations and other community-based, local non-profit organizations in designated Bay Area neighborhoods most impacted by air pollution.

Spare the Air Status

Funding will be awarded for activities that increase interest in local air quality issues and build a community’s capacity to partner with the Air District to develop an emission reduction or air monitoring plan. Eligible communities include:

  • East Oakland/San Leandro
  • Eastern San Francisco
  • Pittsburg-Bay Point area
  • San Jose
  • Tri-Valley
  • Vallejo

The Air District is targeting funding to organizations and groups in communities most impacted by air pollution as a cost-effective means to make air quality improvements for local residents. The Community Health Protection Grant Program will consider funding those working directly within their communities to strengthen community engagement and participation in upcoming plans to improve local air quality.
