Year 19 Funding for Diesel Equipment and Engine Operators

The District seeks proposals from private and public entities in the county for projects to reduce air pollution from diesel engines, according to the terms and conditions of the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program). Typical Carl Moyer Program projects include marine diesel engine repowers and replacements of diesel fueled equipment. The District’s grant funding comes from CARB.
