Proposition 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (GMERP) – Heavy-Duty Trucks and TRUs
The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District(District) is pleased to announce the availability of funds from the Proposition 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (GMERP). The GMERP is a partnership between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and local agencies to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California’s trade corridors. Projects funded under this Program must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation. Approximately $12 million in GMERP funding is expected to be available for owners of heavy-duty diesel trucks and Transportation Refrigeration Units (TRUs) used in freight movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies.
The District is now accepting applications for the GMERP Year 5 round of funding. Please review the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) and applications posted below for more information about eligibility, application process and project requirements.
