Carl Moyer Grant

The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program) provides grant funding for cleaner-than-required engines and equipment. Grants are administered by local air districts. ARB works collaboratively with the districts and other stakeholders to set Guidelines and ensure the Program reduces pollution and provides cleaner air for Californians. The Carl Moyer Program achieves reductions in emissions of key pollutants which are necessary for California to meet its clean air commitments under regulatory requirements. Eligible projects include cleaner on-road, off-road, marine, locomotive, lawn & garden, light duty passenger vehicles being scrapped and agricultural equipment.

The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program provides incentive funds for the incremental cost of cleaner than required engines and equipment. Eligible projects include cleaner on-road, off-road, marine, locomotive and stationary agricultural pump engines, as well as forklifts, airport ground support equipment, and auxiliary power units. The program achieves near-term reductions in emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and reactive organic gas (ROG) which are necessary for California to meet its clean air commitments under the State Implementation Plan. In addition, local air districts use these emission reductions to meet commitments in their transportation conformity plans, thus preventing the loss of federal funding for local areas throughout California. In addition particulate matter (PM), a component of diesel exhaust, has been identified as a toxic air contaminant by the Air Resources Board.

The Air Resources Board sets the minimum requirements for the Carl Moyer Program, while local air districts implement the program on the ground by soliciting funding applications, selecting projects and entering in to contracts to fund new engines, vehicles, and Equipment. Most air districts have specific periods during the year when Carl Moyer Program funding is available.

Peninsula Diesel has been assisting our customers for years on working with the Air Pollution District in coordinating the Carl Moyer Grants. We work with our customers from the preliminary to completion. Work with our Carl Moyer Program Specialist on getting your grant approve as well with our personnel on your re-power.
