BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County Air Quality Management District has $859,639 from California's Community Air Protection Program for grants to help improve air quality.

The funding comes from AB 617, approved by voters in 2017. The goal is to provide incentives for reducing emissions and exposure to pollution, especially in low-income communities.

Past projects funded with the grants include replacing air filtration systems in schools in Thermalito and Chico and replacing old buses with new, electric buses.

Grant applications will be accepted in March, and recipients will be selected in April.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
