Eligible projects are those in which a new or used replacement vehicle with an engine meeting the current model year California emission standard replaces an older, more polluting fire apparatus. The older, replaced vehicle must be destroyed. Eligible weight class include heavy-duty diesel fire apparatus with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 14,000 pounds. Grant funding for a fire apparatus project shall not exceed a maximum of 80 percent of the eligible project cost. Eligible project costs include the cost of the cab and chassis and do not include the specialized equipment such as the ladder or pumper.

Additional Eligibility Information: 
Emission reductions funded through the CMP must be real, surplus, quantifiable, and enforceable in order to meet the underlying statutory provisions and to be SIP-creditable. The requirements in the Carl Moyer Program Guidelines are intended to ensure that these core principles are met. To ensure that projects are surplus to regulations, funded projects must not be required by any federal, State or local regulation, memorandum of agreement/understanding with a regulatory agency, settlement agreement, mitigation requirement, or other legal mandate. A minimum project life, which is determined by project type, is required to ensure that the program does not fund actions taken to comply with regulatory deadlines. The minimum project life helps ensure the overall cost-effectiveness of the program and establishes that the emission reductions are real and quantifiable. Emission control technologies must be certified or verified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) (or for some categories the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or International Maritime Organization) to ensure that real, quantifiable emission reductions are achieved over the life of a project.
