 Greater Portola Area Woodstove Changeout

  Start Date:   To Be Determined! 

(Check back after January 2016)

The Air District is administering a five-year voluntary residential wood stove replacement program to encourage owners to replace older wood stoves with cleaner burning devices and significantly improve air quality and public health in the Portola area. The Greater Portola Area Woodstove Changeout program will work with qualified residents and local retailers to change out old (pre-1992) woodstoves with newer models. This grant will take into consideration a resident's income and provide up to the full amount needed to purchase a new stove. This five year voluntary program is available to residents living within the Greater Portola area.  This includes most of the residents within the zip code of 96122 and the eastern portion of 96103. This program is only available to residents once they have completed an application on the District’s website and received approval and a voucher to present to District-approved woodstove retailers.       

The Air District will begin accepting applications in Early 2016.  If you are interested in this program, please continue to monitor the District’s website where all information, including the official start date of the program will be announced.
