Incentive Programs

We'd like to thank everyone for an overwhelming response to our funding opportunities.  Due to the overwhelming response, the Sac Metro Air District is currently closed to new applications under the Low Emission Vehicle and Infrastructure Incentives Category until the next fiscal cycle is approved.  Applications already received will continue to be evaluated while we await new funding.  In the meantime, we encourage everyone to continue their development of innovative zero emission and ultra-low emission projects within our region. 


If you have a diesel truck subject to the January 1, 2021 deadline for replacement or repower, please contact the Diesel Hotline at (866-634-3735) or visit  Sac Metro Air District does not have incentive funds for trucks being affected by this deadline.

Grant Programs

Funding Available to Help Improve Air Quality 

Sac Metro Air District offers a variety of incentive programs for residents, businesses and public agencies to improve air quality in the Sacramento region. See details below about the Wood Stove / Fireplace Change Out Program; Our Community Car Share; Targeted Green Infrastructure Fund; along with many incentives to help public and private fleets reduce emissions.

For fleets, Sac Metro Air District's Low-Emission Vehicle Program can help reduce the cost of 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. If you operate heavy-duty vehicles or mobile off-road equipment in the Sacramento Federal Ozone Nonattainment Area (SFNA) then you could be eligible. The SFNA includes all of Sacramento and Yolo counties and portions of El Dorado, Placer, Sutter and Solano counties.
