On-Road Heavy-Duty Vehicles Fleet Modernization

The Carl Moyer Fleet Modernization source category provides incentives to replace old high-polluting heavy-duty vehicles with newer, low-emission replacement vehicles, providing real emission benefits earlier than would have been expected through normal attrition. Fleet modernization is covered by Chapter 5 of the Carl Moyer Program Guidelines
