Get up to $4,000 to replace your old wood burning fireplace
–Calling all SLO County residents! The SLO County Air Pollution Control District has funding available to help residents clean up their wood-burning stoves and fireplaces.
Starting July 2, 2018, we will be accepting applications from all residents, county-wide; however, we will be giving preference to low-income households until August 31, 2018. Beginning September 1, 2018, we will begin processing applications from all applicants, regardless of income level.
Fine particles from wood smoke can cause breathing problems for many residents, especially those with pre-existing conditions such as asthma or other lung and heart diseases, while long-term exposure has been linked to reduced lung function and growth in children, as well as lung cancer.
Help protect our blue skies and the health of yourself, your family and your neighbors by replacing that old wood-burning device with a cleaner-burning natural gas or propane device and receive up to $4,000!
• $4,000 for eligible low-income applicants that go from a wood burning fireplace to a gas insert; or,
• $2,000 for standard incentive applicants that go from a wood burning fireplace to a gas insert.
• Other funding levels available depending on your project type!
Funding is limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Work may not begin on your project before receiving a voucher from the SLO County Air Pollution Control District. Read the complete Program Guidelines at SLOCleanAir.org. This program is supported by the California Climate Investments (CCI) Program, a statewide initiative that puts Cap-and-Trade dollars to work.
