The Air District will open up for co-funding requests on Oct. 15 and funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The amount co-funded will depend on the usage pattern and horsepower of the equipment being replaced. The focus is on equipment with Tier 0 or Tier 1 motors. Hulling/shelling and processing equipment is also eligible, according to the ARB definition of agricultural operations. Application form and eligibility details can be found at the Air District’s website.
