Community Resource Teams

Started in 1991, the Community Resource Teams bring together civic groups, agencies, businesses, and environmental organizations that meet regularly and work collaboratively to implement projects that promote cleaner air.

Teams receive support to develop and carry out projects that help address the unique air quality concerns or priorities of their neighborhoods and communities. Activities range from creating fun challenges, promoting local awareness campaigns, and participating in regional initiatives. There are currently eight Community Resource Teams that actively partner with the Air District.

Get Involved: Contact Stephanie Anderson by phone 510-246-8840 ext. 301 or email.

 

Contra Costa County

A cornerstone of the Contra Costa County Resource Team is Idle Free Bay Area, a program dedicated to educating parents and community members about simple ways to save money and gas while reducing pollution.

Napa County

Hallmarks of the Napa County Resource Team include hosting clean transportation meetings, participating in Idle Free Bay Area, and partnering with Visit Napa Valley to encourage sustainable tourism and reduce air pollution from traffic congestion.

San Francisco County

To encourage visitors to the City by the Bay to take in the sights by foot, bicycle, or public transit, the San Francisco County Resource Team developed sfcarfree.org as a resource. Participants in the team’s Fit Trips Challenge, which promotes the health and wellness benefits of alternatives to driving alone, are featured in video interviews.

San Mateo County

In support of reducing traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions, the San Mateo County Resource Team developed the Active Trips Promoter Guide and created a prize drawing to promote alternatives to driving solo.

Santa Clara County

From Tales of the Commute, a toolkit to help employers assist employees in choosing commute alternatives to driving alone, to commuter interviews, the Santa Clara County Resource Team focuses on reducing air pollution and commute-based traffic congestion.

Sonoma County

Community Transportation Fairs, hosted at public centers and with employer partners, and Go Sonoma are centerpieces of the Sonoma Resource Team’s work to provide residents with easy, accessible information on transportation alternatives to driving.

Southern Alameda

Southern Alameda Resource Team outreach has spanned webinars and workshops for city staff and collaborations with Safe Routes to School to raise awareness about the expense and waste of idling.

Tri-Valley Area

To make clean air a shared community commitment, the Tri-Valley Resource Team created the Air Quality Impact Award (AQIA) to acknowledge businesses that work to reduce their carbon footprint through clean commute choices and launched Idle Free Tri-Valley to support residents in lowering vehicle emissions.
