The Carl Moyer Program provides monetary grants to private companies and public agencies to clean up their heavy-duty engines beyond that required by law through retrofitting, repowering or replacing their engines with newer and cleaner ones.
Projects that reduce emissions from heavy-duty on and off-road equipment qualify. This includes trucks over 14,000 gross vehicle weight, off-road equipment such as construction and farm equipment, marine vessels and locomotives, stationary agricultural equipment, forklifts, light-duty and other agricultural sources and airport ground support equipment.
The Tuolumne County Air District receives $175,000 annually for local engine retrofit and replacement projects. Each year through a competitive application process, the district accepts applications year-round for funding on a first-come, first-served basis.
The application period will begin on August 1st, 2023 and will close on August 31st, 2023 at 4 p.m. close of business.
