El Dorado County Woodsmoke Reduction Program

The Woodsmoke Reduction Program is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts cap-and-trade dollars to work. The Program is designed to help households replace an non-EPA certified wood stove or insert used as a primary source of heat with a cleaner burning and more efficient device. Open hearth fireplaces may be eligible for the Program if the fireplace is used as a primary source of heat (backup documentation required).

Wetlands Restoration for Greenhouse Gas Reduction Program

The Wetlands Restoration for Greenhouse Gas Reduction Program (Program) restores wetland ecosystems to provide essential services to California's people, wildlife, and fish. Wetlands have high carbon sequestration rates that can sequester carbon for decades. There is tremendous opportunity to restore large areas of mountain meadow, coastal tidal, and Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta wetlands that do not currently provide the full potential of carbon storage or other benefits due to historical land use.

Rural School Bus Pilot Project

Traditionally, small and rural school districts have the oldest and worst polluting fleets, that historically have not had the opportunity or ability to receive funds for replacement or upgrade projects.

The Rural School Bus Pilot Project (RSBPP) has $10 million available for FY17-18 to accelerate the turnover of California school bus fleets to lower carbon transportation choices.

An applicant webinar will take place on June 13, 2018 at 10:00 am.

California State Coastal Conservancy Climate Ready Grants

The California State Coastal Conservancy’s Climate Ready Program is soliciting proposals for projects that use nature-based solutions to adapt to impacts of climate change. These grants seek to encourage local governments and non-governmental organizations to take action to prepare for a changing climate by advancing planning and implementation of projects that lessen the impacts of climate change, especially within disadvantaged communities.

Water-Energy Community Action Network Programs

The Water-Energy Community Action Network (WE CAN) is a program supported by the California Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to help the people of California adapt to climate change, and mitigate their carbon emissions.

First, the Community Action Partnerships in Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside Counties are providing and installing indoor water-energy saving devices to homeowners at no cost.
