Support a National Changeout Program NOW!

Legislation, the Wood Heater Emissions Reduction Act (WHERA) (S. 2274; H.R. 5391) was introduced in the U.S. Congress that would establish a federal fund for changeout programs.

The bill has been proposed as an amendment to a large package of energy legislation that has a chance of passing Congress. Senators are considering amendments this week.

Changeout programs, which have been proven to be effective at improving air quality and helping people afford new, EPA-certified heaters, have been ongoing for decades, but often rely on unstable sources of funds like environmental settlements and state budgets. This bill would provide for funds to replace older, non-certified woodstoves, hydronic heaters, and forced-air furnaces.

Act NOW and let your Senators know that our country needs this legislation to be passed into law!
