Projects funded under this Program must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation. Program funding will be available until a sufficient number of eligible and complete applications have been received, and all Program funds are fully committed through executed contracts. If additional funds become available, the SCAQMD may re-issue this Program Announcement for additional heavy-duty diesel truck projects.
