IMPORTANT NOTICE: The GMERP Program's initial application period has closed, but you can continue to submit applications for a backup list.
GMERP is a partnership between California Air Resources Board (CARB) and local agencies (like air districts and seaports) to reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along CA's trade corridors. Projects funded under this Program must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation.
At least $1.5 million in GMERP funding is available for all eligible projects that fall under the included source categories: Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs), cargo handling equipment, locomotives and commercial harbor craft. Refer to the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) documents linked below for more information.
Owners of diesel Transport Refrigerator Units (TRU) and existing freight facilities with operation in one of California's four trade corridors.
Owners of diesel cargo handling equipment operating at ports, intermodal rail yards or freight facilities in the San Diego/Border corridor.
Owners of diesel-powered freight locomotives with no or minimal emissions control technology (i.e., uncontrolled, or meeting Tier 0 through Tier 2 standards) or existing freight railyards operating in the San Diego/Border trade corridor.
Please review the most recently published Notice of Funding Availaibility (NOFA)'s for each of the project types outlined above for more information about eligibility, application process, project requirements and project funding amounts:

After all applications are received from each solicitation, they are
ranked according to Proposition 1B Program Guidelines (undersubscribed
truck solicitations will be ranked after a preliminary project list is
available to the public). Proposed projects that appear on the
preliminary project list or ranked list have met basic eligibility
criteria for the Program; however, this does not guarantee funding.
Selection for funding is contingent upon a full evaluation to
determine if a project meets all Program requirements. For information
on prior preliminary project lists and ranked lists please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
