MDAQMD's Mobile Source Emissions Reduction Program provides incentives for reducing emissions from mobile sources through two main grant programs: The Carl Moyer Program and the AB 2766 Program. For more information on the MDAQMD Grants Program, contact Jorge Camacho at (760) 245-1661, ext. 2020.
The Carl Moyer Program
To improve the quality of the air in the High Desert by funding local, cost-effective projects to upgrade heavy-duty diesel equipment using proven technologies and procedures that reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and reactive organic gases (ROG) from diesel-powered engines. Diesel exhaust is a serious public health risk, considered the number one airborne carcinogen in California, responsible for 70 percent of the cancer risk in CA from toxic air contaminants, and a major contributor to lung and heart problems. Funding is provided by California Air Resources Board’s (ARB) Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program and DMV Surcharge Fees.
Since the MDAQMD began its participation in the program, the District has awarded more than $13 million to eligible projects!
The Carl Moyer Program is continually open until funding is depleted.

AB 2766 Funds
Assembly Bill 2766 (Sher) authorized MDAQMD to impose up to a $4 motor vehicle registration fee per vehicle licensed within the State of California to provide funds for air districts to meet new responsibilities mandated under the California Clean Air Act (CCAA). AB 2766 states that the fees shall be used to support district operated planning, monitoring, enforcement and technical studies necessary to implement the CCAA.
The Mobile Source Emissions Reduction Program is funded by fees collected on motor vehicle registrations. The program funds local and regional transit agencies, the Voluntary Accelerated Vehicle Retirement Program and the Lawn and Garden Equipment Exchange Program.
Since the program's inception, MDAQMD has awarded more than $11 million to creative and cost-effective projects which reduce mobile source emissions within the District's boundaries.
