The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (APCD)
administers state-funded grant programs to cover significant
portions of the cost of installing fueling or energy infrastructure to fuel or power eligible equipment.
Grant applications are accepted for a limited time each year.
• When the grant program is opened, you can apply through the APCD Citizen Access online application system.
• As the grant application window is limited, potential INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT applicants may wish to gather
legible electronic copies of the needed documents in advance:
1. Applicant certification of compliance with federal, state, and local air quality regulations
Grant Program Regulatory Compliance Statement, signed after the grant period officially opens.
2. Tax Forms
3. A detailed project description and plan
• Quotes and bids along with bid selection process
• Permits obtained
• Land ownership/lease agreement
• Documentation that sufficient power or fuel is being
provided to the site
• Project timeline/schedule/plan
• For shore power projects, an “Initial Terminal Plan”
Finally, if you are planning to apply for a grant, please keep the following recommendations in mind:
• DO NOT PURCHASE NEW EQUIPMENT YET! New equipment funded by this program can only be ordered or
purchased once the contract is signed between the equipment owner and the APCD.
• STAY COMPLIANT! Equipment must remain compliant at all times with all applicable federal, state, or local
regulations, and all applicable regulatory advisories, without the assistance of any grant funding requested in
