The project is part of the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Community Air Protection Program and seeks to empower community members in Old North Sacramento Norwood and Oak Park to help monitor their air quality and guide investments to reduce carbon emissions and improve public health and wellbeing.
Through this program, CARB has awarded a two-year Community Air Grant to a group of local nonprofit organizations – Valley Vision, WALKSacramento, Breathe CA Sacramento Region, and Green Tech Education – to help the Old North Sacramento/Norwood and Oak Park neighborhoods monitor their air, understand how air quality impacts health, and develop a plan to reduce exposure to air pollution.
