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
