The Sac Metro Air District has over $18 million in mobile source incentive funding to improve air quality in Sacramento. Most of this funding is available in Sacramento, Solano, and Yolo Counties in partnership with the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District. The application period will open on March 29, 2021 and close on May 28, 2021. Applicants are encouraged to develop their proposals now. The primary purpose of this funding is to promote zero-emission equipment used instead of diesel in communities impacted by air pollution. However, applications are accepted for other categories, and one common application is used for all funding.

Eligibility and Funding Summary

Funding will be available to replace medium and heavy-duty vehicles with zero-emission trucks and buses, install low carbon fueling infrastructure, replace older farm tractors, upgrade locomotives, or complete other eligible projects. Applications are open to private companies, government agencies, and other entities to promote clean transportation and goods movement in Sacramento. Any applications not funded may be used to advocate for more funding in the future, so we request that you apply for any projects that might help achieve the goal of reducing vehicle and equipment emissions.

The District will accept applications from March 29, 2021 to May 28, 2021. Final details about the program solicitation will be posted on the website by March 29, 2021. Staff will have a Zoom webinar to discuss the program in April. Details will be made available soon. Please visit our website for more information and updates:
