Wood Stove Incentive Replacement Program
The District's Wood Stove Incentive Replacement Program assists in replacing older, non-certified wood stoves, with cleaner, more fuel-efficient wood heating devices or other less polluting heating appliances. Replacements that may qualify for incentive funding include:
  1. Replacement of non-EPA certified wood heating appliances with EPA certified appliances. Click here for the EPA certified list.
  2. Replacement of non-EPA certified wood heating appliances with propane or natural gas heating appliances.
What do I have to do first?
The grant application period is offered one time each year, generally late summer. For more information about any of these grant programs contact District Staff at (707) 443-3093 or for assistance.
What is the process?
During the grant application period (to be determined each year) applications may be downloaded by clicking here or by requesting to have a copy mailed to you. Directions and application deadlines are clearly noted on the form. Purchase of the replacment device cannot be made until an official award offer is made.
Who can apply?
Individulas that reside within the boundaries of Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity Counties who own the residence in which the heating device is located are eligible. Individuals cannot be employed by the District, be a member of the District Board, or be a family member of either the employees or the Board.
What happens if my project is selected for grant funding?
You will be notified by mail that you have been selected to receive a grant. At that point, you may purchase the aproved appliance and have it installed by a licensed individual or licened contractor. Proof of destruction of the old device is required.
What criteria are used to determine which projects will be granted money?
Once the application period has ended, applications will then be selected at random and placed on a list from which the awards will be drawn. Based upon the order of this list, applications that are determined to be complete will be awarded a grant until all the funds allocated are exhausted. Those applications not selected will be placed on an "eligible waiting list."
