COVID-19 CARB Operations Update
In-person services are not currently available at CARB locations. Staff remain available to serve the public and provide assistance via email & phone.More Information
California has made significant progress to reduce our exposure to harmful air pollutants, the result of regulations and programs based on sound science. These achievements reflect a collective and bipartisan effort over the past half century that involves the Legislature, air districts, regulated industries and the public. We have come a long way but many in our state still breathe unhealthful air, and childhood asthma rates are above the national average.
There is far more work to be done. CARB stands ready as it enters its next 50 years to build on this strong environmental legacy and ensure that all Californians will breathe clean air.
What We Do
The California Air Resources Board typically has monthly meetings with the agenda available at least 10 days prior to the meeting date. Board Meetings are currently open to the public via remote participation only, and also are available via webcast.
In accordance with recently enacted legislation Assembly Bill 361, the October 14, 2021, meeting of the California Air Resources Board will not have a physical location open to the public. It will be a remote-only meeting.
