FY 2004-2005 Carl Moyer Program Multi-District Projects

This page was last reviewed March 20, 2008

Section 44286 of the Health and Safety Code gives ARB the authority to reserve up to 10 percent of Carl Moyer Program funding for multi-district projects. Multi-district funding is particularly well suited for projects that operate a portion of the time or miles outside their primary district of operation (within California), or projects with significant air quality impacts in other air districts as a result of air pollutant transport.

ARB solicited project applications for FY 2004-2005 Carl Moyer Program Multi-District projects between March 18, 2005 and April 18, 2005. ARB limited the multi-district project solicitation to projects of a statewide priority:

  • Goods Movement Projects, Including:

    • Marine Vessels and Locomotives

    • Off-Road Equipment Located at a Maritime Port or Railyard

    • On-Road Heavy-Duty Vehicles that Transport Cargo to and from a Maritime Port or Railyard

  • Off-Road Construction Equipment that Operates in More than One Air District

  • PM retrofit devices that also get NOx reductions for on-road heavy-duty vehicles that operate in more than one air district.  

ARB received over $26 million in requests for $2.9 million in available multi-district project funding. Projects were scored based upon cost-effectiveness, regulatory jurisdiction, environmental justice considerations, project schedule, and application completeness (see the project solicitation for more information). The projects selected for FY 2004-05 Carl Moyer Program Multi-District Funding are listed below.
