Wood Smoke Reduction Incentive Program

Updated 10/21/2019

The Wood Smoke Reduction Incentive Program was developed to improve local air quality by reducing wintertime particulate matter pollution. The program provides grant funding to help lower the cost of replacing a wood-burning heating device with cleaner options.

The Wood Smoke Reduction Incentive Program is currently accepting applications from residents located in Air District designated highly impacted and high wood smoke areas (highlighted in red and violet in the Map of Eligible Areas). Funding is offered on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds have been spent.

Interested residents  are encouraged to thoroughly review the Program Requirements and Terms and Conditions and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) before submitting an application. The Online Wood Smoke Application User’s Guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to complete an application.

Note, the most current version of the application is titled “Winter 2017/2018 Program.” Only completed applications will be evaluated for funding.

The program eligibility may be changed if additional funding becomes available. Residents that are not currently eligible are encouraged to sign up to receive program update notifications. The most current program materials are named “Winter 2017/2018 Program.”

Please note that from November 1 through the end of February, under the Air District's wood-burning regulation, when a Winter Spare the Air Alert has been called, burning wood, firelogs, pellets, or any other solid fuels in your fireplace, woodstove, or other wood-burning device is illegal.

Follow these links for more information on the Air District's wood-burning regulation, and instructions on how to comply.

You can also file a wood smoke complaint online.
