  • Carl Moyer Program (Year 17)

The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (District) has opened the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Grant Program (Carl Moyer Program). The purpose of the Carl Moyer Program is to obtain voluntary emission reductions from heavy-duty diesel engines through the use of incentive funding.  A total of approximately $3 million will be available for eligible heavy-duty diesel emission reduction projects.

Unlike past years, projects will not be funded on a first-come, first-served basis. This year the District will accept applications from Wednesday, June 24th  to 5pm Friday, July 24th, 2015. Projects will then be ranked according to their cost-effectiveness, and funded from most to least cost-effective until funds are exhausted.

Please contact the District at (858) 586-2600 or if you have questions about the program, have difficulty with the online application process, or have a project that does not fit into the online application categories.

Please read the Notice of Funding Availability for more information about the program and project eligibility criteria.

  • Voucher Incentive Program (VIP)

The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (District) is currently accepting applications for projects requesting funds from the Voucher Incentive Program (VIP). The VIP provides a streamlined approach to reduce emissions for qualified on-road diesel trucks with Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 14,001 pounds or higher. Vouchers are available to replace qualifying trucks with newer, lower-emission vehicles, or to install Verified Diesel Emission Control Strategies (VDECS or “retrofits”). Trucks with engine model year 2006 or older are eligible for this program. These VIP projects must be completed by no later than December 31, 2015. Applications are submitted through approved San Diego Air Pollution Control District VIP truck dealerships or retrofit installers.

Applications will be reviewed and approved on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the date of receipt by the District) until funds are exhausted. Vouchers for eligible truck replacement projects range from $5,000 to $45,000.  Up to $10,000 is available for qualified retrofit projects.

Funding is currently restricted to San Diego County based fleets of three or fewer trucks that have operated at least 75% each year in California in the past 24 months. Applicants are required to submit information showing current compliance with the Truck and Bus Regulation. If a submitted application is incomplete, illegible, or any documentation is missing or unclear, the District will reject the application immediately and return it to the applicant. Other voucher requirements are outlined in the Notice of Funding Availability and the Application Package. 

We highly encourage participating dealerships/installers to submit applications online through the County’s online Citizen Access system - Dealerships/installers can also submit one original signed completed application and one copy via mail, delivery, or in person to:
