Small Fleets (1 to 3 trucks) Can Apply Now for Prop. 1B Grants

On July 25, 2013, the Board approved funding awards to eligible local and State agencies for FY2013-14 (Year 4) funds.  The local agencies are currently conducting a second solicitation to receive applications from truck owners, with the following conditions:

 

  • All applicants must meet the eligibility requirements.  Basic requirements are:

  • 75% operation within California for the past 2 years

  • Move goods as part of a sales transaction

  • Commit to at least 50% travel within the four California trade corridors

  • Drayage trucks (including dray-off trucks) are not eligible

  • Small fleets will be given priority.  Large fleets may also apply during this solicitation.

  • We are expanding this solicitation to allow funding for all engine model years that are 2006 and older.

If small fleets meet the Proposition 1B goods movement eligibility requirements, they can now apply for a grant that would enable them to receive funding in 2014, and demonstrate a good faith effort to comply with the Truck and Bus Regulation.  ARB will be issuing a regulatory advisory soon to provide guidance on how it will handle compliance for fleets that make such good faith efforts to comply with the Truck and Bus Regulation deadline.

PRIOR NOTICES

August 23, 2013

The Imperial County Air Pollution Control District (District) is pleased to announce the availability of funds from the Proposition 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (GMERP). The GMERP is a partnership between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and local agencies to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California’s trade corridors. Projects funded under this Program must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation. Approximately $150 million in GMERP funding is expected to be available statewide for owners of heavy-duty diesel trucks used in freight movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies.
