The purpose of the CMP is to obtain emission reductions of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Particulate Matter (PM10) and Reactive Organic Gases (ROG) from heavy-duty vehicles and other equipment operating in California as early and as cost-effectively as possible. The CMP provides financial incentives to assist in the purchase of cleaner-than-required engine and equipment technologies to achieve emission reductions that are real, surplus, quantifiable and enforceable. 

CMP funding is provided via two legislative bills, SB 1107 and AB 923.  SB 1107 provides approximately $61 million per year in statewide funding, and AB 923 permits air districts in designated non-attainment areas to collect an additional two dollars in vehicle registration fees to expend on programs to reduce emissions from vehicular sources and off-road equipment. A resolution approving such fees was adopted by the SCAQMD Board on December 3, 2004. 

The Carl Moyer Program fills a critical niche in California’s strategy to achieve clean air.  In the past 18 years, the CMP has provided $410 million in funding which has resulted in approximately 6,937 tons per year of NOx and 181 tons per year of PM emission reductions throughout SCAQMD.

What's New:
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is proposing CMP Guidelines update by no later than July 1, 2017.  Some of the key changes to the CMP include establishing new cost-effectiveness limits based on consideration of technology and regulatory costs. Other changes will include incorporating other public funding sources to leverage CMP funds.  If the guideline revisions become finalized by CARB in time for the evaluation period, the SCAQMD will use the new guidelines for evaluation of projects submitted under this Program Announcement.

Funding Categories:
Below are the specific project categories identified for funding under the SCAQMD 2017 CMP solicitation.  For additional information, please click on the project categories below or Program Announcement #2017-04 (PDF, 6.6MB)
