Welcome to the AQMD’s Carl Moyer Webpage
The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer
Program) is named after Dr. Carl Moyer in recognition of his work in improving
air quality. The Carl Moyer Program does not pay for compliance with a
regulation - - instead, it provides competitive grants for the incremental cost
of cleaner-than-required engines, vehicles, and equipment. The program
focuses on cleaning the air by replacing older heavy-duty diesels with electric,
alternative-fuel, or cleaner diesel technologies.
Since 1998, the Carl Moyer Program has provided funding to
encourage the owners of diesel engines to go beyond regulatory requirements by
retrofitting, repowering, or replacing their engines with newer and cleaner
ones. While regulations continue to be the primary means to reduce air pollution
emissions, the Carl Moyer program plays a complementary role to California’s
regulatory program reducing NOx and PM by funding emission reductions that are
surplus, i.e., early and/or in excess of what is required by regulation.
This is the fifteenth year of the Carl Moyer Program and $26.6 million is available
for FY 2012-13 project awards within the South Coast AQMD’s 4-county
jurisdiction. If more funds become available by the time of awards
approval, more projects will be awarded up to the total amount of funds
Current Carl Moyer Program.
