The Houston-Galveston Area Council’s Clean Cities/Clean Vehicles Program serves the Houston-Galveston area, including Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery and Waller counties. The primary goal of the Clean Cities/Clean Vehicles Program is to reduce the emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), volatile organic compounds (VOC) and particulate matter (PM) emissions. This program also seeks to maximize the use of clean fuel vehicles (low emissions) operating within the Houston region in order to improve air quality, achieve energy independence and stimulate economic growth.
