Wood smoke reduction grants

These grants are provided to local clean air agencies and Ecology regional offices (where a local clean air agency doesn't exist) through a competitive process for projects that will protect people from breathing harmful smoke.

Wood smoke is one of the main sources of air pollution in Washington. Wood stoves, fireplaces, and other wood-burning devices put out hundreds of times more air pollution than other sources of heat, such as natural gas or electricity.
