CLEAN AIR PROJECTS PROGRAM II
Inyo County is administering the Clean Air Projects Program II on behalf of Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District.
The Clean Air Projects Program II (CAPP II) is open to all residents, organizations and entities within the Owens Valley Planning Area (see the link to the OVPA Map below), including individuals, nonprofits, businesses, government, and educational institutions. All projects for consideration must also be located in the OVPA. Residents and entities on reservation lands within the OVPA are also qualified to participate. Air pollution reduction efforts which are already required of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) by Air District do not qualify for CAPP II funding.
CAPP II funds must be used for projects that directly or indirectly reduce air pollution. The reduction can be local, direct and immediate, such as a woodstove upgrade/replacement, which immediately reduces the amount of air pollution directly discharged from an identified source within the Air District, or the reduction can be regional and ongoing, such as the expansion of a public transportation system to reduce single occupancy vehicles and associated emissions. Projects may also indirectly reduce air emissions, such as building community trails that encourage people to walk or ride bicycles instead of driving around town, or a local educational program that leads to knowledge and behavior preventing future emissions. Direct emission reductions are much easier to quantify than indirect emissions reductions, however, projects that directly reduce local air pollution emissions within populated areas will rank higher than projects that reduce regional or future air pollution. Using best available knowledge, all proposed projects should attempt to quantify the type and amount of air pollution reduced, including threats to human life.
