The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program ("Carl Moyer Program") provides incentive grants for cleaner-than-required engines, equipment, and other sources of pollution. The Moyer Program complements California's regulatory program by providing incentives to obtain early or extra emission reductions.
More information about the Carl Moyer Program can be found on CARB's website.

What criteria are used to determine which projects will be granted money?
Funding is awarded on a competitive basis. Projects which reduce the greatest amount of pollution at the lowest cost are given preference. The District also considers project location as well as other factors such as small business ownership, overall project cost, the potential for broad application of the project to other jurisdictions, and matching funds provided by outside sources
What happens if my project is selected for grant funding?
You will receive a Notification of Potential Award if your project is pre-selected for funding. Letters are sent approximately 30 days after the close of the application period. Pre-selected projects will be required to provide additional documents, e.g., proof of ownership, operational status, and usage, and a pre-inspection will be scheduled to verify information contained in the application. Once verified, a final award determination will be made and a contract will be prepared for signature. Following contract execution, the new equipment may be ordered.
Once the project is operational, annual usage reports will need to be submitted to demonstrate use of equipment during the prior year.
