    American Lung Association is offering up to $3000 to Change Out or Update Old Woodstoves


    The American Lung Association in Colorado in fighting for cleaner air by providing $900,000 in vouchers to help replace or retrofit old wood and coal stove appliances with new, efficient Environmental Protection Agency certified appliances. Residents of Boulder, Denver, Jefferson, Larimer, and Weld counties are eligible for a voucher for $400-$3000, depending on replacement appliance and income level.

    Many Coloradans depend on woodstoves as a primary source of heat, but a lot of the woodstoves in operation today are inefficient and emit unnecessary levels of toxic air pollutants, like particular matter and other ozone precursors. The fine particles in smoke – also called fine particle pollution - can get deep into the lungs, harming the lungs, blood vessels and heart. People with heart vascular or lung disease, older adults and children are the most at risk.Learn more about the health effects of particle pollution.

    New wood, natural gas, and pellet stoves are much more efficient and are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency to control emission, so a stove bought today is much cleaner-burning and releases fewer harmful air pollutants and carcinogens. By replacing older stoves with new ones, residents will save money and improve their health, while the rest of us benefit from safer air.

    Find out how it works and complete the voucher in its entirety. Application instructions are at the beginning of the voucher application. Applications can be submitted directly to the American Lung Association via Email at or physical mail to:
