Grants & Bids

South Coast AQMD has a number of programs that provide monetary incentives for implementing cleaner technologies.  These programs are generally rooted in the initiatives and policies adopted by the South Coast AQMD Governing Board or in state and federal programs designed to spread the use of cleaner technologies that reduce air pollution.  Incentive programs cover the gamut from large fleet replacement projects to the replacement of wood-burning fireplaces using gas-log inserts to new transportation systems that help reduce mobile emissions.

In addition, South Coast AQMD solicits bids for a full range of business services and supplies and technology development research projects, including the purchase of off-the-shelf equipment, development of new monitoring devices, contracted business and scientific services, such as landscape services or specialized computer programmers, and much more. 

This page lists active Program Announcement/Opportunity Notices (PAs or PONs) and Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and Requests for Quotation (RFQs).  For further information on available grant opportunities, please see the complete list of Funding Incentives.
