Community Air Protection Program Statewide Strategy and Implementation Guidance
CARB staff released the Final Draft of the Community Air Protection Program Blueprint 2.0 (Final Draft Blueprint 2.0) for public comment that will be considered for adoption by the CARB governing Board at its October 26, 2023, meeting. During the Board meeting, public comments are welcomed in-person or virtually.
The Final Draft Blueprint 2.0 serves as CARB staff’s proposed five-year Statewide Strategy and strategy implementation guidance to reduce emissions of toxic air contaminants and criteria air pollutants in communities affected by a high cumulative exposure burden. The Final Blueprint 2.0 revisions reflect the experience and lessons learned from the first years of the program development and implementation. The CARB Board adopted the first Community Air Protection Blueprint in September 2018 (2018 Program Blueprint) and Blueprint 2.0 is intended to replace it.
Blueprint 2.0 consists of Two Parts:
- Part One – details the 5-yr Statewide Strategy to reduce emissions of toxic air contaminants and criteria air pollutants in communities affected by a high cumulative exposure burden - includes mission, vision, guiding principles, goals, objectives, and priority actions for CARB and air districts in implementing Program activities.
- Part Two – provides implementation guidance to help all Program partners (e.g., air districts, communities, affected industry, and other partners) participate in the process to improve air quality at the community scale and achieve the goal of reducing harmful emissions and exposure to toxic air contaminants and criteria air pollution in overburdened communities.
Blueprint 2.0 is significantly informed by The People’s Blueprint, which was developed by environmental justice leaders, and recommends an equity-centered approach to implement the Program.
