Valley Air Grants


The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (Air District) develops and administers a comprehensive suite of voluntary incentive programs targeted at reducing harmful emissions throughout the San Joaquin Valley.  These innovative programs provide an opportunity for Valley residents, businesses, public agencies and other organizations to get involved and make a positive impact on the Valley’s air quality.  The Air District is constantly updating existing programs and developing new programs as newer, cleaner technologies emerge.

Air District funds can be used to fund new projects, or to replace your local contributions on federally funded projects.  As such, SJCOG staff would like to highlight programs available to public agencies:
