Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program
Since 1998, the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Moyer Program or Program) has cost-effectively reduced smog-forming and toxic emissions. Approximately $1 billion has been allocated to date and the Program continues to provide over $60 million in grant funding each year to clean up older polluting engines throughout California. The regulatory, technological and incentives landscape has changed significantly since the creation of the Moyer Program and to address evolving needs, the Legislature has periodically modified the Program to better serve California. Most recently, Senate Bill (SB) 513 (Beall, 2015) has provided new opportunities for the Program to contribute significant emission reductions alongside implemented regulations, advance zero and near-zero technologies, and combine program funds with those of other incentive programs.
