Grants & Incentives
Invested in Community
For 25 years we’ve supported the communities we serve through Clean Air Incentive Programs that help maintain excellent air quality. We harness funding and grants to create initiatives that beneﬁt individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations.

Community Grant Programs
NoSoCoAir is proactive in its clean air mission by crafting and offering District incentive programs to reduce air pollution and to provide GHG reductions that help us to meet county and state climate sustainability targets. For example, the District’s Go Green! EV incentive program reduces pollution by removing combustion vehicles from the roads and supports the development of an EV charging infrastructure. The District’s Burn Clean! Wood Stove program destroys old dirty stoves, reduces black soot, a powerful climate change pollutant, and provides an option to electrify heating. The Carl Moyer program provides options to remove dirty diesel engines from operation with cleaner engines or conversion to electric operation.
Diesel Engine Update / Replace
Replace, repower or retrofit qualifying diesel engine-powered equipment or vehicles with newer, cleaner, diesel engines. The District is currently providing assistance for: marine vessel repower, some stationary agricultural pumps, and off-road diesel equipment, including tractors. Applicants may receive up to 80% replacement cost, depending on their project scoring.
Moyer Program applications are accepted year round on a first come first serve basis. When funds are expended, remaining applications are placed in the queue for the next funding cycle.
Wood Heating Appliances
Provides qualifying applicants a rebate to replace a non EPA-certiﬁed wood heating appliance with a new EPA-certiﬁed wood or pellet stove, or gas insert, or electric heat pump. Under this program, the old, non-certiﬁed appliance must be destroyed. Program includes supplemental assistance for qualifying Russian River Area and low income households. Please note that it is illegal to install or change ownership of a non-EPA certified stove.
We will launch Version 2.0 of this program starting in early 2021 with new state funding.
EVs & Public Chargers
Go Green! is on temporarily on hiatus as the District is currently a co-funding partner of the Sonoma Coast Incentive Project. This CALeVIP project will fund 6 million dollars of Level 2 and DC Fast chargers in Sonoma county over the next 3 years.
Incentive programs are optional and rules and restrictions apply. District Programs are available to residents within the NoSoCoAir territory only.
