Community Health Protection Program Background
In response to Assembly Bill 617, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District developed the Community Health Protection Program to benefit communities most directly affected by air pollution. The Community Health Protection Program will be a community-driven, transparent process that builds capacity in communities to reduce emissions and exposure to air pollution.
The first step in this process was for the Air District to identify a "universe" of candidate communities for the program and share them with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) by April 30, 2018. This initial submittal includes a general description of the communities that the Air District recommends including in the AB 617 process.
A second submittal, due July 31, 2018, will include the Air District's recommendations for prioritizing communities for community air monitoring and/or preparation and implementation of community emissions reduction programs.
Your expertise and insights about Bay Area communities are important to this process. In this brief survey you will be able to weigh in on the selection process and let us know where you would like to see us focus implementation in years 2-5 of AB 617.
