Funding Available for Projects that Reduce Air Pollution in Placer County

The Placer County Air Pollution Control District (District) is seeking applications for its Community Air Protection (CAP) Incentives Program for projects that reduce localized air pollution in disproportionally impacted communities within Placer County.  The District will begin accepting applications October 20, 2020, and will continue until November 20, 2020, 5 pm.  Only, businesses, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply.


The CAP Incentives Program provides grant funding to projects that achieve emission reductions of smog forming pollutants, in excess to those required by regulation.  Projects eligible to be considered for funding include:


  • Electric vehicle charging stations for businesses and public agencies (residential not eligible)
  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or hydrogen fueling infrastructure
  • School bus replacements for public schools (diesel to diesel, CNG or electric)
  • Heavy-duty (>14,000 GVWR) diesel to electric or CNG vehicle replacements (limited options)
  • Heavy-duty off-road diesel equipment replacements (small off-road and agricultural fleets only)
  • Agricultural pump replacements (Tier 3 to electric)


For CAP funding, priority is given to projects that reduce emissions in impacted communities in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Auburn and Kings Beach.  Examples of CAP projects funded to date include school bus replacements in the Roseville City and Western Placer Unified School Districts and co-funding towards the purchase of a new Amtrak Capitol Corridor Locomotive servicing commuters and alleviating traffic in Roseville, Rocklin and Auburn.


Project applications received will be reviewed on a competitive basis and must meet funding eligibility criteria.  The District will be accepting applications October 20 through November 20, 2020, 5 PM.  Applications must be original versions and submitted by mail or hand delivered to the District office at 110 Maple Street, Auburn.  Applications received after the deadline will not be accepted.


To obtain additional information contact Molly Johnson at (530) 745-2326 or  Details about the application categories, requirements and forms are available on the District’s website at,
