About Us

National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) represents air pollution control agencies in 45 states and territories and over 116 major metropolitan areas across the United States.

State and local air pollution control officials formed NACAA (formerly STAPPA/ALAPCO) over 30 years ago to improve their effectiveness as managers of air quality programs. The associations serve to encourage the exchange of information among air pollution control officials, to enhance communication and cooperation among federal, state, and local regulatory agencies, and to promote good management of our air resources.

Did You Know?

The word “smog” was first used in England by Dr. H.A. Des Voeux. He coined the term about a century ago to refer to smoky air mixed with fog. England was also one of the first countries to combat the problem of smog. In 1952, four thousand people died in London because of major smog attacks.
