Grants & Incentives

As the regional air district, the North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District (District) is the local environmental agency which implements designated grant programs, in addition to other available grant programs available directly from the Califoria Air Resources Board (CARB) or the EPA. The District annually offers the following grant programs:
  • Carl Moyer Program Grants
    The Carl Moyer memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program) provides incentive grants for cleaner-than-required engines, equipment, and other sources of pollution providing early or extra emission reductions. Eligible projects include cleaner on-road, off-road, marine and agricultural sources. The District implements the program from funding received from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
  • TIMBER Grants
    The Truck Improvement/Modernization Benefitting Emission Reductions (TIMBER) Program provides a streamlined voucher funding option to reduce emissions by replacing older model diesel engine log trucks with newer model diesel engine log trucks.
  • VIP Grants
    The On-Road Voucher Incentive Program (VIP) takes the current criteria of the CARB Carl Moyer Program Fleet Modernization program and streamlines the requirements for both the participants and the District.
  • Wood Stove Incentive Replacement Program
    The Wood Stove Incentive Replacement Program assists in replacing older, non-certified wood stoves, with cleaner, more fuel-efficient wood heating devices or other less polluting heating appliances. Although contigent upon District funds, this program is available annually during the summer-fall enrollment period.
  • Rural School Bus Pilot Project
    The goal of the Rural School Bus Pilot Project is increasing the turnover of California school bus fleets to lower carbon transportation choices, especially in rural school districts who have less access to other funding sources. The District anticipates the application process to begin sometime in late 2016 after the appropriation of funds in the State Budget.
