Community Air Protection Program (CAPP) Incentives

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD) administers and implements a wide range of voluntary incentive grant programs to reduce air pollution in communities throughout the air district.  These incentive programs include, but not limited to:

  • Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program)
  • Proposition 1B – Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program
  • On-Road Voucher Incentive Program (for small fleets of 10 trucks or less)
  • Lower-Emission School Bus Program
  • Enhanced Fleet Modernization Program – Replace Your Ride
  • Volkswagen Mitigation Program

In 2017, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 617 (AB 617) to develop a new “community-focused” strategy to reduce emissions of criteria pollutants and toxic air contaminants in communities that are affected by a high cumulative exposure burden.  In response to this bill, CARB established the Community Air Protection Program (CAPP).  This program is now underway and South Coast AQMD staff are working in local communities to reduce air pollution emissions in these most impacted communities. 

For information on CAPP Incentives, including the applications received and final project selection for the first three years of the program, please click on Year 1, Year 2 or Year 3.
