Financial Opportunities for California Trucks-
Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program



Vehicle Replacements, Repowers and Conversions

The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program) provides financial opportunities for the incremental cost of cleaner than required trucks, engines, and equipment. The Carl Moyer Program is implemented through the cooperative efforts of the ARB and local California air pollution control or air quality management districts (districts). Every year, ARB distributes State funds to participating districts. Such districts follow ARB Carl Moyer Program Guidelines to select, fund, and monitor specific clean air projects in their areas. Funding for trucks is limited in the Carl Moyer Program to those districts that administer programs for on-road vehicles.
