Homeowners are being offered grants to convert their wood-burning stoves and fireplaces into natural gas or electric.
The Utah Department of Environmental Quality offered to help pay for the cleaner burning solution, a press release stated Tuesday.
In 2019, the Utah Legislature provided $9 million in funding to DEQ's Division of Air Quality in H.B. 357. The money's purpose is to fund the conversion of wood-stove and fireplaces to help improve Utah's air.
Depending on their income, homeowners can receive up to $4,000 for the conversion, a press release stated.
The program will launch in September in parts of Salt Lake and Davis Counties.
In 2020, the program will expand to other areas along the Wasatch Front.
