Truck Replacement Program

Other Programs

The District is currently accepting applications to replace on-road diesel trucks with alternative technology units. Truck replacement projects that will accelerate emission reductions in low income and disadvantaged communities experiencing greater air quality impacts may receive priority through the project review and selection process. Projects funded under this program must achieve emission reductions not required by law or regulation. Please note that Truck Replacement Program is not a rebate program, any new truck purchased prior to contract execution is ineligible.
