Grants for Vehicle Owners to Protect their Catalytic Converters

The Lake Forest City Council created two grants to help residents protect the catalytic converters in their vehicles from thefts. 

Catalytic converter theft continues to occur nationwide because these anti-smog devices contain precious metals with high recycling values. Although they are stolen from various makes and models, Orange County Sheriff’s Department data shows Toyota Priuses, Honda Accords, and Honda Elements are the most targeted vehicles. 

The Catalytic Converter Painting & Etching Program reimburses  automotive shops $125 to paint and etch the catalytic converters of certain vehicles. The Catalytic Converter Shield Program provides residents with a $250 gift card toward the purchase and installation of a catalytic converter theft mitigation shield. The City is accepting applications from residents and local business owners with fleet vehicles who desire to have their vehicles protected from catalytic converter theft.
