2-6-20: GRANT FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR MARINE, INFRASTRUCTURE, SCHOOL BUSES, WOODSTOVE CHANGE-OUTS, and OLD CAR BUY-BACK

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA: – The SLO County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) is announcing grant funding opportunities to help local businesses, school districts and residents clean up commercial marine vessel engines, install electric and alternative fuel vehicle infrastructure, school buses, woodstoves & fireplaces, and old light-duty cars. The incentive funding for these emission reduction projects comes from the APCD’s Carl Moyer Grant award from the state, locally generated DMV registration funds, and the California Climate Investments Program. 

Specific incentive funding is available for the following eligible emission reduction project categories within SLO County:

  • $150,000 for commercial marine vessel engine repowers;
  • $105,663 for alternative fuel & zero emission infrastructure projects;
  • $165,000 for school bus emission reduction projects
  • $118,068 for countywide fireplace and woodstove replacements with clean electric, gas, or clean wood burning devices;
  • $11,940 and $15,881 in historic funding remains specifically to replace Nipomo & Paso Robles fireplaces and woodstoves; and,
  • $109,153 to continue the Old Car Buy-Back Program.

Since 1997, the APCD has granted $25.3 million dollars through SLO County emission reduction incentive programs resulting in over 3,070 tons of ozone precursor and toxic diesel emission reductions. The emission reduction projects funded with the above listed incentives infuse dollars into our local economy which helps modernize our businesses and communities and help provides cleaner air for all to enjoy.
