AIR DISTRICT ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR DECEMBER 2018
  


$135,000 Woodsmoke Reduction Program

The  Air Pollution Control District is pleased to announce a Woodsmoke Reduction Pilot Program designed to help Tuolumne County households replace un-certified wood burning stoves, fireplace inserts, or open hearth fireplaces, used as a primary source of heat, with a cleaner burning and more efficient heating alternative. Our Program is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment. Vouchers will be issued in a standard amount ($1,000) or enhanced amount ($3,500). To qualify for an enhanced voucher ($3,500) applicants must meet one of several low-income criteria (see the voucher application form for details) and proof of income eligibility is required.

All Vouchers for our current years program have been assigned.  If you wish to be on a waiting list or applying for next years program, please fill out the application below.  Please read the directions and include all documents.  If you have any questions please contact the District.
