Woodsmoke Reduction Program

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.
