The Loan Assistance Program is to encourage small business owners
to upgrade their marine vessels for early compliance with ARBís
Commercial Harbor Craft Regulation (CHC Regulation)  . 

Loan Assistance for Diesel Marine Vessels and Engines
http://www.arb.ca.gov/html/fact_sheets/calcap_marine_vessels.pdf

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) received $5 million in
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to assist small
business owners with replacement of marine vessels or marine
vessel diesel engines with cleaner, less-polluting engines.  This
will allow small businesses that do not meet todaysí stringent
lending standards, to qualify for financing related to engine
repowering, replacement, retrofit; or replacement of marine
vessels.  The marine vessel must be diesel powered commercial
harbor craft, including, but not limited to, charter fishing
boats, commercial fishing boats, crew and supply vessels,
ferry/excursion vessels, pilot vessels, towboats, tugboats, and
work boats. 

If you have any questions regarding the Loan Assistance for
Diesel Marine Vessels and Engines, please contact either your
local air district http://www.arb.ca.gov/capcoa/roster.htm or
Todd Sterling at 916-445-1034 or via e-mail at
tsterlin@arb.ca.gov.

The CHC regulation was adopted in November 2007 and became
effective in January 2009.  Commercial harbor craft includes crew
and supply vessels, commercial fishing vessels, ferries,
excursion vessels, pilot boats, tugboats, towboats, barges,
dredges, and workboats.  Existing diesel engines on specific
vessel types are required to meet U.S. EPA Tier 2 or Tier 3
marine engine standards.  This regulation is part of ARBís
ongoing effort to reduce diesel particulate matter in communities
located near ports.  Additional information on the regulation is
available at the following link:

If you have any questions regarding compliance with the
commercial harbor craft regulation, please contact Todd Sterling
