Bay Area Air Quality Management District
The California Legislature created the Air District in 1955 as the first regional air pollution control agency in the country. The Air District is tasked with regulating stationary sources of air pollution in the nine counties that surround San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties. It is governed by a 24-member Board of Directors composed of locally elected officials from each of the nine Bay Area counties. The Air District aims to create a healthy breathing environment for every Bay Area resident while protecting and improving public health, air quality, and the global climate.
“The Air District’s Climate Tech Finance program supports innovative projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Jack Broadbent, executive officer of the Air District. “We are excited to provide financial support to accelerate cutting-edge solutions and help meet the region’s climate goals.”
