Clean Air For All: Moyer/FARMER/CAPP Grants
The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District launched the Clean Air for All Grant Campaign to help businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies swap their polluting heavy machinery and equipment for electric and low carbon emission alternatives.
The application period has closed as of Friday, December 4, 2020 at 5 p.m.
This Clean Air for All solicitation is for three grant programs:

Is my project cost-effective?
The District and CARB now offer online calculators to allow applicants to estimate their project’s cost-effectiveness, which is a key evaluation criterion. Calculators are available for off-road and on-road equipment replacement projects and marine vessel repower projects. Use of the calculators is for estimation purposes only and does not guarantee a project will qualify for funding. Click the calculator that applies to your project below:
