Funding for Diesel Engine Operators

The District’s Innovative Technologies Group promotes the application of clean fuels and energy projects.We continue to seek proposals from private and public entities in the county for projects to reduce air pollution from heavy-duty diesel engines, according to the terms and conditions of the California Air Resources Board’s (ARB) Carl Moyer Air Quality Memorial Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program). Typical Carl Moyer Program projects include heavy-duty engine repowers, replacements, and retrofits for both diesel and alternative- fueled equipment. The District’s grant funding comes from the ARB’s Carl Moyer Program and the DMV Motor Vehicle Registration Fee Surcharge Program.

Program applications for grant funding can be downloaded under the appropriate equipment category below. Staff will evaluate each project on a first come, first served basis and approve projects until all funds have been expended.

For more information consult the 2011 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines, visit the ARB Verified Diesel Retrofit Devices website, or contact Jim Fredrickson at (805) 961-8892. Please consult the Carl Moyer Program Advisories for modifications to the guidelines and current program policies.
