Air Pollution Control District


$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 uncertified 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.
