The  Air District has opened the application period for the Carl Moyer grant program, to reduce ozone-forming and toxic air emissions from older heavy-polluting diesel equipment. Eligible diesel-powered equipment includes medium- and heavy-duty trucks, mobile agricultural and construction equipment, marine vessels, and locomotives.

Spare the Air Status

The Carl Moyer Program is a statewide effort in partnership with the California Air Resources Board, that is managed regionally by the Air District.

The Air District will accept applications for projects throughout its nine-county San Francisco Bay Area jurisdiction, but will prioritize projects that reduce emissions in communities that are significantly impacted by air pollution. 

This funding will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to owners of eligible equipment or vehicles. Funding is available for the following projects:

  • New equipment projects that replace older engines with newer and cleaner models
  • Repower projects that replace older engines with newer and cleaner engines
  • Retrofit projects that install verified emission control or idle limiting devices

For more information about the grant program or to start an application online, visit the Carl Moyer Program web page or call 415-749-4994.
