Asthma Impact Model

The Asthma Impact Model is a free multi-component asthma management program designed to reduce asthma emergencies and emergency room visits. 

Go Electric!

CCAC is proud to partner with the Center for Sustainable Energy and the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) to help San Joaquin Valley communities learn about electric vehicles, and the rebates they may be eligible for through CVRP and other programs. 

Community Air Grant

Through the Community Air Protection Program (CAPP), regional air districts and the California Air Resources Board are working with disadvantaged communities across the state and the Valley to implement additional emissions reporting, monitoring and air pollution reduction plans.

CALeVIP

The California Electric Vehicle Incentive Project (CALeVIP) is extending its electric vehicle (EV) charger rebates with the launch of the San Joaquin Valley Incentive Project. This project offers electric vehicle infrastructure support to property and business owners in Fresno, Kern and San Joaquin counties.

Our Mission

CCAC’s mission is to provide education and direct services, build regional capacity and advocate for sensible policies that improve health and address inequities by reducing environmental impacts and emphasizing the prevention and management of chronic disease.

We see a San Joaquin Valley where the health of every resident is our foremost concern. We envision environments and systems of support for health reflected in the resources, information, activities and policies in every community.

History

Central California Asthma Collaborative (CCAC) was founded out of a need that the Fresno/Madera Asthma Coalition (FMAC) identified in the lack of asthma-related education, advocacy and resources in the regions it served. In 2011, FMAC received a grant from the Wesley Foundation to develop and implement an asthma education program for children in low-income communities. Working with Fresno State University’s Masters in Public Health program students, the newly formed CCAC recruited students to do outreach in the community and visit asthma impacted families to perform what is now the Asthma Impact Model (AIM) Program.
