The Woodsmoke Reduction Pilot Program (Program) is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged communities. Assembly Bill 1613 committed $5,000,000 in funding for replacing uncertified, inefficient wood burning devices with cleaner burning and more efficient devices. Statute establishes investment minimums for disadvantaged and low-income communities and low-income households. The Program is designed to help households replace an uncertified wood stove or insert used as the primary source of heat with a cleaner burning and more efficient device
Devices located within disadvantaged communities or low-income communities as defined by this map qualify for the Enhanced Incentive Voucher (up to $3,500). Low-income households outside of these areas also quality for the Enhanced Incentive Voucher. To qualify as low-income, the household must show proof of enrollment in a low-income assistance program (WIC, LIHEAP, CARE) or have a household income at or below 80 percent of the statewide median household income (currently at $51,026). Remaining residents outside the map areas are eligible for the Standard Voucher of $1,000.
