Proposition 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (GMERP)
The $1 billion Proposition 1B: Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (GMERP) is a partnership between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and local agencies (like air districts and seaports) to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from diesel exhaust (a known carcinogen) that is created by freight movement along California's trade corridors. Local agencies, such as the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (District), apply to CARB for funding, and in turn offer financial incentives to owners of equipment used in freight movement to help them upgrade to cleaner technologies. Projects funded under this program must achieve early or extra emission reductions that are not otherwise required by law or regulation.
After all applications are received from each solicitation, they are ranked according to Proposition 1B Program Guidelines. Proposed projects that appear on the ranked list have met basic eligibility criteria for the Program; however, this does not guarantee funding. Selection for funding is contingent upon a full evaluation to determine if a project meets all Program requirements. Links to prior ranked lists are below.
