Infrastructure Incentives

​Status: The application period is currently open for infrastructure projects.



The Sac Metro Air District can help fund alternative fueling and charging infrastructure via the Carl Moyer Program and Community Air Protection Incentive Program. Infrastructure incentives are for hydrogen fueling stations and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), also referred to as battery electric vehicle charging stations.  Applicants that are interested in applying for EVSE incentive funding are encouraged to prepare now.  A quick guide and series of steps to our EVSE program can be found here.

Funding is available under the 2024 Community Air Quality Grant Solicitation

    • Criteria listed below are used to assist in application selection when funds are available. 
    • Disadvantaged Communities are encouraged to apply with a priority emphasized in communities identified under our AB 617 Community Air Protection Program.
    • All charging and fueling station applications may be considered "Public Works Projects" under California Labor Code.  Applicants are responsible to report and comply with all applicable regulations. 
    • Public infrastructure is any infrastructure accessible by any vehicle 
    • Private infrastructure is any infrastructure restricted to specific vehicles

Step 1: Before Applying, contact your local utility company!

Your local Utility Company may have additional funding that can be stacked with our programs. All funding amounts cannot exceed the cost of the infrastructure. Other limitations may apply and will be evaluated during the application review process.

1 Sensitive receptors include schools, hospitals, daycare centers, and such other locations as the air districts or CARB may determine ((H&SC § 42705.5(a)(5)). 

2 Projects that include Solar/Wind Power systems must be capable of supplying at least 50% of the estimated electricity output of the EVSE. Applicants that include on-site renewable generation must provide a methodology for estimating the total energy provided for vehicle charging from the system to determine whether the generation meets the 50% requirement. Projects not connected to the electrical grid will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may not be eligible for funding.
