Assembly Bill 617 signed into law in 2017, directs the California Air Resources Board to establish the Community Air Protection Program.  The program a community-focused action to reduce air pollution and improve public health in communities that experience disproportionate burdens from exposure to air pollutants.

On September 27, 2018, the Board selected ten communities for the first year of this program to implement community emissions reduction programs, community air monitoring, or both. At the same meeting, the Board also approved the “Community Air Protection Blueprint” (Blueprint), which contains detailed requirements for community emissions reduction programs, community air monitoring plans, and other elements of the Program.

CARB will conduct a public meeting in Fresno to consider the South Central Fresno Community Emissions Reduction Program.  Businesses located in Fresno are sought to review the program, policies, and provide input to the board.  Click here for more information.
