Truck Replacement Program: The District is currently accepting applications to replace on-road diesel trucks with cleaner technology units or to expand fleets with the cleanest technology available.

Truck replacement projects that will accelerate emission reductions in low income and disadvantaged communities experiencing greater air quality impacts may receive priority through the project review and selection process. Projects funded under this program must achieve emission reductions not required by law or regulation. Please note that Truck Replacement Program is not a rebate program, any new truck purchased prior to contract execution is ineligible. For additional information, please contact Dynamic Renewable Solutions by phone (661) 496-1356.
