Cross-State Air Pollution Rule - Resources For Implementation
The CSAPR requires fossil fuel-fired electric generating units at coal-, gas-, and oil-fired facilities in 27 states in the eastern half of the U.S. to reduce emissions to help downwind areas attain fine particle and/or ozone NAAQS. This page provides resources to help sources meet the CSAPR requirements.

CSAPR 2012 and 2013 Allowance Allocation Revintaging
On October 18, 2011, EPA placed 2012 allowances for all four CSAPR programs into accounts for sources with a certified account Designated Representative (DR). On October 25, 2011, EPA placed the 2013 control period allowances in accounts of sources in states which did not indicate that they will be determining 2013 allowance allocations. As of the October 17, 2011 deadline, twelve states notified EPA that they intended to distribute 2013 CSAPR allowances to sources in their states: Alabama, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. To align allowance vintages with the court-ordered program timing, EPA "re-vintaged" the previously recorded 2012-vintage and 2013-vintage CSAPR allowances to 2015-vintage and 2016-vintage allowances, respectively. After the re-vintaging, EPA recorded any additional allowances needed to bring the previously recorded CSAPR allowance allocations for 2012 and 2013 under those budgets up to the corresponding unit-specific allocations shown in the spreadsheet described in the NODA.
