Air Quality Initiative

The EQIP Air Quality Initiative provides eligible producers with program support to address air quality concerns from agricultural operations and helps them meet regulatory requirements. The program is designed to help producers meet air quality compliance requirements, as well as, support practices which address impacts associated with greenhouse gases (GHG). Eligible Counties were identified as having air pollution levels which persistently exceed National Ambient Air Quality Standards established by the Clean Air Act as well as having EPA designations of non-attainment for one or more of the following air quality resource concerns: Particulate Matter 10 (PM10), Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM2.5), or Ozone (O3).
