Goods Movement Trucks

Replace or repower heavy-duty diesel-fueled trucks or install charging & fueling infrastructure with funding from the Goods Movement Program. This program aims to reduce air pollution from equipment primarily moving freight and commercial goods along California’s major trade routes.

Year 5 Goods Movement Program – Heavy Duty Diesel Trucks

The solicitation is open until May 6, 2021, and the Air District is currently accepting Goods Movement Program truck project applications for projects to replace or repower existing commercial diesel-fueled trucks with new alternative-fueled equipment, install charging and fueling infrastructure, or install truck-stop electrification with grant funding. Please sign up on the Carl Moyer Notification List at the bottom of the page for notification of future Goods Movement Program and Carl Moyer Program equipment grant solicitations. 

Project Types

The following projects are eligible for funding under this program:

  • Equipment/vehicle replacement - replace freight-hauling diesel trucks (class 5-8, medium-duty and heavy-duty engine cycles only) with the cleanest available equipment
  • Engine repower (small fleets only) - repower diesel truck engine with 2019 or newer zero-emissions or alternatively fueled engine
  • Truck stop electrification - install electric infrastructure to reduce diesel engine idling where trucks congregate
  • Charging and fueling infrastructure - install electric charging or hydrogen fueling infrastructure for trucks

    Year 5 Preliminary Ranklists: Truck Solicitations 2016-2020

    Year 5 funds opened in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020. Year 5 preliminary ranklists for closed solicitation periods are posted below.

    Equipment shown on the preliminary ranklist has met basic eligibility criteria for the program. However, appearance on the ranklist does not guarantee that equipment will receive program funding; applicants must complete further steps in order to receive funding. 

    Regulatory compliance - Program eligibility assumes that a truck and the fleet are already compliant at the time the owner applies for a grant. If staff notify applicants that their projects cannot be funded due to regulatory non-compliance, owners must work with CARB TRUCRS staff to correct fleet reporting problems. If compliance issues cannot be resolved with CARB, the fleet is not eligible for YR5 Goods Movement Program funding.
