What is the Conversion Program?

The Wood Stove and Fireplace Conversion Assistance Incentive Program was developed to improve air quality by reducing wintertime wood smoke pollutants. The program provides grant funding to households to lower the cost of replacing a wood-burning heating device with cleaner options. The program applies to households who actively use wood fuel for heating their home.

    Program Instructions and Funding

    Eligible applicants are issued an award voucher that expires 30 days from the date it is given to the homeowner, unless the recipient enters into a contract with a program approved vendor. The project under this program must be completed within 100 days of receiving an award.

    Once you enter into contract with an approved vendor, you must give the vendor your award voucher for processing. The vendor will reduce the cost of the purchase by the amount of the voucher at the time of purchase. Reimbursements are paid directly to DAQ approved vendors.
