2021 US EPA National Environmental Leadership in Asthma Management Award
CCAC is a proud recipient of the 2021 National Environmental Leadership in Asthma Management Award for our Comprehensive Asthma Remediation and Education Services (CARES) program (formerly known as AIM)
What We Do
Comprehensive Asthma Remediation and Education Services (CARES)
CARES is a free program available to Medi-Cal patients in the San Joaquin Valley. CARES reduces indoor environmental asthma triggers and assists patients in better utilizing asthma medications to manage their condition.
The SJVAir Network provides real-time air quality text message alerts to Valley residents based on a network of 400 air monitors across the San Joaquin Valley. Residents can sign up to receive alerts from monitors located near their home, school and work.
EV Equity Program
The EV Equity Program provides assistance to Valley residents interested in driving an electric vehicle but can’t afford the cost. Program staff help residents apply for available state and regional incentives providing up to $10,000 in down payment assistance, plus $3,000 in post-purchase rebates.
Environmental Health Research
The Environmental Health Research Program is a collaboration with leading universities, including UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Merced, UC Irvine, UCLA, and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, to study the health effects of indoor and outdoor air pollution on children living in equity communities of the San Joaquin Valley.
