OVERVIEW:

The Program is administered by a partnership between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and local agencies to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California’s trade corridors.  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.

This Program Announcement is seeking applications for the replacement of heavy-duty diesel truck projects, including the six project options identified below.  Please note funding is also available for electric charging stations, hydrogen fueling units, and truck stop electrification infrastructure.  About $11 million in Program funds are available for this solicitation.

WHO:  The following may apply for funding through this solicitation:

  1. Owner of an on-road, heavy-duty diesel truck with a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 16,001 lbs. or greater (Class 5, 6, 7 or 8 truck) used to move goods as part of a sales transaction for a majority of the time,
  2. Any entity who plans to own and operate the Program-funded electrification infrastructure at a truck stop, rail yard or other freight facility, with agreement from the site owner.

IMPORTANT NOTES:


  • Clear all outstanding CARB violations for vehicle and/or fleet, and maintain compliance with CARB’s Truck and Bus Regulation and all other CARB regulations.
  • If you do not have copies of registration records, visit your local DMV office and request a Vehicle Registration Information Record (form INF 1125) for each truck in your application. To find your local DMV office, please visit http://www.dmv.ca.gov. You may also obtain and pay for the DMV printout online at: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/online/vrr.htm.
  • Gather at least 2 records showing valid odometer readings at least 6 months apart for each truck in your application.
  • Determine the manufacturer’s Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) as identified on a sticker/label most commonly found on the truck door jamb or on the inside of the door.If this tag is missing or not readable/legible, please check with your local dealer.
  • Maintain current registration for the old truck; keep it in legal operating condition until delivered to dismantler.Truck must continue to move goods for sale a majority of the time. Planned Non-Operation (PNO) is not allowed at any time.
  • Applicants may request reduced funding amounts to improve cost-effectiveness and competitiveness of the project.
  • Projects committing to 90% operation in California may be less competitive due to decreased emission reductions achieved within California
  • Clear all old truck titles of any lien holders. A copy of the clean title for each old truck will be required for replacement projects before the grant payment can be made.
  • Make sure your truck has a readable/legible VIN tag on the truck and engine tag on the engine prior to any inspection (project pre-inspection and post-inspection).
For complete Program requirements, please refer to the latest 2015 Update to the Program Guidelines and related supplemental materials listed on the CARB Program website at www.arb.ca.gov/gmbond or call Mei Wang at the South Coast Air Quality Management District for guidance at (909) 396-3257.
