We are now accepting applications for Year 21 Carl Moyer funding, as well as Year 2 of the FARMER Program funding. The deadline to turn in an application is October 18, 2019. All applications mailed in must be postmarked no later than October 18th, 2019 in order to qualify for Year 21 and Year 2 funding. Submit your application to the Tehama County Air Pollution Control District by mail or hand delivery only. NO FAXES OR EMAILS WILL BE ACCEPTED or processed.

Projects that will be considered and/or eligible for funding are agricultural engine projects (i.e. tractors, forklifts, balers, agricultural pumps, etc.). Other projects such as on and off-road diesel projects (i.e. filters and/or replacements) and infrastructure (i.e. installation of fueling or energy infrastructure to fuel or power covered sources) may be considered also. In addition to agricultural engine projects the FARMER Program gives an applicant the opportunity to replace an agricultural UTV with a zero-emission UTV.

Projects will be ranked based on cost-effectiveness and will be funded starting with the most cost-effective to the least cost-effective until available funds are exhausted. The FARMER UTV replacement projects will be chosen on a first come, first serve basis until all UTV project allocated funds are exhausted.

A complete application packet received by the District must include the following:

  • A detailed quotation from your supplier for the new equipment. The quotation shall include:
    • a description and specifications of the proposed new equipment including: year, model, horsepower rating, ARB engine Family Number and Executive Order number.
    • a list of included attachments and accessories.
    • price quote.
    • Warrant Information.
  • Proof of ownership—owned the engine for at least two (2) years (i.e. bill of sale, tax depreciation, maintenance records, general ledger)
  • Proof of annual usage—as stated on the Carl Moyer Year 21 Application (i.e. hour meter reading log, employee timesheets, repair work orders, preventative maintenance records)
  • The Payroll Data Record (PDR) form included in this application packet. The County is required to send out 1099 forms to all participants in the Carl Moyer Program.

Completeness letters will be mailed out within five (5) working days upon receipt of each application, if anything from the above list is missing, applicants will have a total of two (2) weeks to submit missing documents. If the appropriate information is not received prior to the two (2) week deadline, the application will be denied, and an applicant will have to reapply for funding.
