The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District is seeking Valley truckers -- especially single owner/operators -- to apply for grants to help meet a state emission-reduction deadline and is offering free regional workshops to provide application assistance.
The district has made an additional $7 million available and broadened its eligibility criteria through its Truck Voucher Program, specifically for the Valley's 15,000 single owner/operators. Recipients may be eligible for up to 35%, or $50,000, of a vehicle's purchase price. Those who apply for the separate Proposition 1B Program, targeted at fleet operators, may be eligible for up to $50,000 in incentive funding.
For more information on the two programs, visit www.valleyair.org/trucks or call (855) 99GRANT (4726).
