Woodsmoke Reduction Program

Applications for the Woodsmoke Reduction Program will be available soon. Please see below for more information about the program or feel free to contact Lisa Mann at (530) 527-3717 ext. 103.

The Woodsmoke Reduction Program (Program) is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Program is designed to help households replace 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 (documentation required). This Program will offer Vouchers towards the purchase and installation of a new EPA-certified woodstove, fireplace wood insert, gas (natural gas or propane), or electric 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.

Once you receive a voucher, you must make a commitment to purchase a new device from a Participating Retailer within 4 weeks. The new device must be installed by a licensed contractor and meet local fire and building codes; do-it-yourself installations are not allowed under this program.
