 Login 

The Air District began accepting applications for the Carl Moyer Program (CMP) Year 22 application cycle on October 1, 2020.

More than $40 million is available for projects to upgrade or replace on-road vehicles, school buses, off-road and agricultural equipment, marine equipment, and locomotives.

The Air District is offering grants through the Community Health Protection Grant Program and the Carl Moyer Program for projects throughout the Bay Area that would reduce toxic air emissions and ozone-forming pollutants from older diesel engines. Applications are accepted and evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis until funds run out.

Priority is given to projects that reduce emissions in the following impacted communities – AB 617 communities and communities for future AB 617 consideration.

  • West Oakland
  • Richmond-San Pablo
  • East Oakland/ San Leandro
  • Eastern San Francisco
  • Pittsburg-Bay Point area
  • San Jose
  • Tri-Valley area
  • Vallejo

Air District staff will determine whether applications meet Community Health Protection Grant Program and Carl Moyer Program requirements. New project types and increased grant amounts are available for the purchase of hybrid, zero- and near-zero-emissions equipment, and for fueling and charging infrastructure as part of alternative-fuel or battery-electric project types.

Project Types

Funding is offered on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds have been spent. Applications must be complete to be considered for funding.

Funds are available for the following project types:

  • Equipment/Vehicle replacement - replace an old vehicle or piece of equipment with the cleanest available vehicle or equipment.
  • Engine replacement (repower) - replace an old engine with a new, emission-certified engine.
  • Power system conversion – convert existing equipment to operate on electric or hybrid power.
  • Battery charging and fueling infrastructure - install infrastructure to charge or fuel new, funded equipment. Infrastructure only projects may be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

Eligibility

Grants cannot be used for projects that are currently required by law or by a contract or agreement. More information and additional requirements are available in the Program Overview Fact Sheet and California Air Resources Board Carl Moyer Program web page.

A new funding priority in 2018 includes higher award amounts for the replacement of diesel-fueled equipment with zero-emissions (or cleanest available) equipment.

Eligible Equipment

Zero-emissions projects are highly encouraged. Public or private entities that own a variety of equipment types are encouraged to apply in each category, particularly if fueling or charging infrastructure will be included in the application.
