Advance Program

Advance Program Participants

The participants below have agreed to take proactive steps toward improving air quality. EPA is assisting them as they identify, evaluate, select, implement, and update measures and programs tailored to their needs. If your area is interested in participating in the Advance program, contact advance@epa.gov.

NOTE: EPA does not "approve" or "disapprove" participant commitments. Participants send updated plans to EPA about once a year.  Their submissions are posted on this site as they are received by EPA. Areas that have dropped out of the program are removed from this web page; plans provided by these areas are available here.

This U.S. map displays the participating Advance areas (i.e., areas participating with respect to ozone, PM, or both ozone and PM).
