Community Air Protection Program Incentives

The state Legislature also adopted AB 134 to fund community air quality projects to accompany AB 617 Community Air Monitoring efforts. As a result, the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (Sac Metro Air District or District) received $3 million of the total $250 million allocated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) in 2017-18. The first cycle expands on the District’s current Carl Moyer Program. This program funds the incremental cost of cleaner than required heavy duty engines and equipment including trucks, buses, trains, off-road equipment and infrastructure. Priority will be given to projects in low-income, disadvantaged communities identified by Cal Enviro Screen 3.0 and particularly impacted areas identified through the AB 617 process.

The District is developing potential projects, with community input, that would use this funding to provide timely emission reductions and decrease public exposure to air pollution. Projects and strategies funded through this effort will continue to be refined through public input at community workshops and stakeholder outreach. A list of current projects is listed below.

  • Equipment/Vehicle replacement - replace an old vehicle or piece of equipment with the cleanest available vehicle or equipment.

  • Engine replacement (repower) - replace an old engine with a new, emission-certified engine.

  • Power system conversion - convert existing equipment to operate on electric or hybrid power.

  • Battery charging and fueling infrastructure - as part of an equipment project, install infrastructure to charge or fuel new, funded equipment.


Eligible Equipment

Zero-emissions projects are highly encouraged. Public or private entities that own a variety of equipment types are encouraged to apply in each category, particularly if fueling or charging infrastructure will be included in the application.
