CAP Incentive Program Survey

Let us know what you think!

The Sac Metro Air District wants to hear from you about air quality in your neighborhood.

Please take our 5-minute survey to tell us about air pollution and possible solutions in your neighborhood. 

Why this survey? 

Sac_Smoke_1.jpgCalifornia has been hit hard again by wildfires, which has impacted our air quality dramatically since August. Year-round, the Sacramento Region is impacted by other air pollution sources that are less obvious than a wildfire.  Mobile sources, such as cars, trucks, and trains, cause our biggest air pollution problems. Typically, the larger the engine, the more pollution it produces. In some cases, a higher number of small sources can cause more pollution than one large source. For example, many diesel trucks operating every day in an area can cause more pollution than a train running through an area once a month.   

We need your help. Please tell us the air pollution problems you notice in your community by answering the survey questions.

What are we going to do with this information?

We will be using your answers to rank the types of projects we fund to reduce air pollution in your community. Your responses will help guide this overall process and, in the long run, will help improve air quality in your neighborhood. 

While most of the projects listed in the  Community Air Protection Incentives Guidelines focus on replacing vehicles and equipment, if you have any other suggestions that we should fund in the future or any other helpful information, please tells us in your survey answers.  We will forward your suggestions to the California Air Resources Board and other partner agencies to be considered for future funding.
