Air District Fact

As the Air District celebrates its 50th anniversary, the CARE Program is just one of a series of innovative projects that will be undertaken in the years ahead, as the agency expands its scope to address new challenges, from indoor air pollution to global warming. The last half century has seen dramatic improvement in the Bay Area's air quality, and the Air District expects to build on this success as it prepares to make bold new gains in the next 50 years to come

Carl Moyer Program Application


Truck Funding: For applications and information on grant opportunities for on-road truck projects, please see our Voucher Incentive Program (VIP) webpage.


The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program) is a voluntary program that offers grants to owners of heavy-duty vehicles and equipment. The program is a partnership between the California Air Resources Board (ARB) and the local air districts throughout the state. In the Bay Area, the Carl Moyer Program is administered by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District) with the purpose of reducing air pollution emissions from local heavy and medium duty engines. Grants cannot be used for projects that are currently required by law or by a contract or agreement; however, they can be applied to equipment that complies at least three years in advance of state regulations.

Projects will be selected for funding on a first-come, first-served basis based on the date the application is deemed complete by Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District) staff. Applications will be accepted until all funds have been allocated.

Grants are available for projects that:

  • install verified emission control devices
  • replace older heavy-duty engines with newer and cleaner engines
  • replace older equipment with newer and cleaner equipment
  • purchase new equipment that is cleaner than the law requires
  • install electric idling-reduction equipment

Eligible Equipment Categories

The Air District is accepting applications for projects throughout its jurisdiction, but will prioritize projects that reduce emissions in the following nine impacted communities:

  • Concord
  • Richmond/San Pablo
  • Western Alameda County
  • San Jose
  • Livermore
  • Eastern San Francisco
  • San Rafael
  • Vallejo
  • Antioch/ Pittsburg

A map of the impacted communities can be found below under the documents section. The following counties are part of the Air District's jurisdiction: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Napa counties. The southern portions of Solano and Sonoma counties are also part of the Air District.

For a general overview of the Carl Moyer Program, refer to the program fact sheets. For specific details on the Carl Moyer Program refer to the ARB Carl Moyer program Guidelines.
