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).
  • 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.
  • FARMER Grants
    The Funding Agricultural Replacement Measures for Emission Reductions (FARMER) Program provides funding for agricultural harvesting equipment, heavy-duty trucks, agricultural pump engines, tractors, and other equipment used in agricultural operations.
  • Rural School Bus Pilot Project (RSBPP)
    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.
  • Woodsmoke Reduction Pilot Program
    The Woodsmoke Reduction Program will offer financial incentives for homeowners to replace old, inefficient, and highly polluting wood stoves, wood inserts, or fireplaces with cleaner burning and more efficient home heating devices. The incentive amount will vary depending on the location of the residence and the household income. The Woodsmoke Reduction Program is part of California Climate Investments, a Statewide program that puts billions of cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment.
