Local Programs

The Yolo-Solano AQMD administers the following incentive programs:

Agricultural Chipping Program (Pilot)

The District was awarded funding from the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2021 Targeted Airshed Grant (TAG) program to develop a pilot Agricultural Chipping Program that will provide financial incentives to farmers to encourage chipping of orchard pull-outs and prunings as an alternative to open burning. A survey has been developed to gather interest from District agricultural partners for the current funding, and to help the District secure additional funding for a larger program. 

See more information and take the survey

Clean Air Funds

The Clean Air Funds Program allows private business, non-profit organizations and public agencies to apply for grants for projects designed to reduce emissions from motor vehicles. Applications are typically made available in the spring and funding is awarded at the June meeting of the Board of Directors.
