Carl Moyer Program: Off-Road Voucher Incentive Program (ORVIP)

This page last reviewed October 7, 2016


The Off-Road Voucher Incentive Program (ORVIP) provides a streamlined approach to reduce emissions by replacing existing, high-polluting equipment with newer, lower-emission equipment. The ORVIP provides real emission benefits by retiring the high-polluting equipment earlier than would have been expected through normal attrition or by regulation. Carl Moyer Program funds for voucher projects are used to offset part of the cost of the replacement equipment.

For more information regarding the Carl Moyer Program, please email us or contact ARB's Diesel Hotline.
