Community Invited To Air Quality Projects Meeting

Tri-Community NewsPlus

The Mojave Desert Air Quality Management District (MDAQMD) has planned a community meeting to gather input from residents on reducing emissions and improving local air quality.

The meeting’s core presentation will address the Community Air Protection Program, created through Assembly Bill 617 in 2017. The program encourages opportunities to collaborate with disadvantaged communities to improve air quality in areas that need it most.

The Community Air Protection Program focuses on air quality monitoring and emissions reduction initiatives at the community and neighborhood levels.

Participants at the meeting will hear from MDAQMD Deputy APCO Alan De Salvio, Support Services Supervisor Jorge Camacho and Grants Specialist Truong Tran. They’ll present an overview of the program and successful projects that have received Community Air Protection Program funding since its launch and related emissions reductions. The discussion will also touch on available grants for community groups based in the High Desert and Palo Verde Valley and the next steps in the program for MDAQMD.

The digital community meeting is scheduled from 9 to 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9. Those who wish to participate may visit to register. Registration for the meeting will include a link to participate and a phone number to call into the meeting for those unable to participate digitally.
