Statewide Program Provides Local Funding to Help Improve Air Quality

Private business and public agencies that operate heavy-duty vehicles or mobile off-road equipment in the Sacramento Federal Ozone Nonattainment Area (SFNA), which includes all of Sacramento and Yolo counties and portions of El Dorado, Placer, Sutter and Solano counties, can receive funds to reduce the costs of new lower emission technologies for diesel engines or zero-emission technologies. The SacMetro AQMD helps fleets pay for new lower emission engines, lower emission retrofits, and new equipment replacements under the SacMetro AQMD Low-Emission Vehicle Incentive Program. Mobile sources such as cars, trucks, tractors and other on-road and off-road vehicles produce 70 percent of the pollution in the air. Low-emission fuels and technologies lead the way to cleaner air. By helping businesses purchase newer engines the SacMetro AQMD will speed up progress to reduce air emissions, improve air quality, and help meet state and federal clean air standards.

The SacMetro AQMD offers incentive programs to help pay for:

  • Lower emission engines in NEW on-road and off-road tractors, buses, backhoes and harvesters
  • Repowering, rebuilding, or retrofitting diesel equipment with cleaner engines or other low-emission technology


Customer Service Survey

If you've received funding from one of the SacMetro AQMD grant programs, we're asking you to participate in a short customer service survey. The survey addresses all aspects of the grant program from application submission through your receipt of the grant payment. Tell us what we're doing well, and let us know where we need to improve . We appreciate your feedback. Thank you for your participation.
