What is GMERP?

The Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (GMERP) is an incentive program sponsored by a $1 billion state bond measure Proposition 1B passed by voters in 2006. The Air Resources Board (ARB) and the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) are program partners offering assistance to owners and operators of on-road heavy-duty vehicles and locomotives with the purchase of newer emission equipment and technologies. The goal of the program is to improve public health by reducing pollution associated with diesel emissions from goods movement throughout the state of California.
