Bay Area Regional Climate Action Planning Initiative

The Air District has received funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant program, or CPRG, to lead a five-county climate action planning process to position the region to compete for $4.3 billion in implementation funding available in early 2024.  Learn more about the multi-year planning effort, referred to as the Bay Area Regional Climate Action Planning Initiative, or BARCAP.

Local Government Climate Planning

Local governments play a critical role in enacting on-the-ground policies and programs that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Air District’s Climate Protection Planning Program provides planning and policy support to these key partners.
