Application Period for
the Carl Moyer Program will open on March 4, 2024.
The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program) was established in 1998 to fund the incremental cost of cleaner-than-required heavy-duty engines. This program is named in honor of the late Dr. Carl Moyer, whose extraordinary dedication, hard work, vision, and leadership made this program possible. He created and masterminded this program, in a noble effort to unite business and government in the name of public interest to improve California's air quality.
The Sac Metro Air District receives funding from the ARB annually to implement the Carl Moyer Program. Air districts are required to fund projects according to the Carl Moyer Program guidelines, but they can also implement local restrictions suited to community needs. For this solicitation, the Sac Metro Air District has the following local restrictions:
Applicants must have a physical address within Sacramento County.
Funding is not available for leased vehicles or equipment.
The Sac Metro Air District must be listed as a lien holder on vehicle replacement projects through the contract term.
Agricultural funding is only available for Sacramento County based projects.
Funding determinations are based on usage within the Sacramento Federal Nonattainment Area for ozone except for zero emission replacements which use total California usage.
The Sac Metro Air District will not fund Light-Duty Vehicles, Heavy-Duty Vehicles, Locomotive Projects, or Residential Lawn and Garden Equipment Replacements under this application period. Future periods may include these options.
Commercial Lawn and Garden Equipment Replacements are under a separate solicitation
Applicants are required to deliver old equipment to Bar None Auctions in Sacramento – or another designated dismantler – to participate in this solicitation.
Subject to the local restrictions shown above, the Sac Metro Air District will accept applications for all projects described in the 2017 Revisions to the Carl Moyer Program Guidelines.
