The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District is providing grant funds to benefit public health by cost-effectively replacing old, high-polluting equipment with newer, cleaner equipment earlier than required by regulation or through normal attrition. See news release issued August 13, 2019. 

The grant funds come from the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Carl Moyer Program, Community Air Protection Program, Funding Agricultural Replacement Measures for Emission Reductions (FARMER) Program, and California Department of Motor Vehicles surcharge revenue.

These grant programs generally follow CARB 2017 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines, FARMER Guidelines, or other CARB guidelines. All funded projects in the following six project categories must comply with the requirements found within the guidelines for the specific program, including cost-effectiveness thresholds.
