What is the Woodsmoke Reduction Program?
The Woodsmoke Reduction Pilot Program is funded by California Climate Investments and administered by local air districts. This program provides an incentive voucher to replace a pre-1988 or homemade non-EPA certified wood-burning stove or fireplace that is used as a primary source of heat with either an EPA-certified woodstove or insert, or natural gas, propane, or electric heating device. Vouchers of $1500 are available to all Lassen County residents with qualifing devices, who have not received a wood smoke reduction grant within the last 5 years. For low-income residents or those living in cenus tracts designated low-income or disadvantaged areas, enhanced vouchers of $3000 are available.
