Money to fund our Clean Air Make More outreach program comes from fines the Maricopa County Air Quality Department collects from air quality violators. Under the Federal Clean Air Act, this region faces federal sanctions of up to $7 billion in lost highway and transportation funds if we fail to act quickly to reduce the levels of particulate matter in our air. If the EPA imposes highway fund sanctions, that means this region cannot begin new transportation improvement projects, regardless of the funding source. Those sanctions remain in place until we clean up our air.
