August 31st Deadline for ARRA Engine Loan Program

press release
Thursday, August 02, 2012

The (California) Air Resources Board is reminding and encouraging small business owners of off-road diesel vehicles, portable diesel equipment, or diesel marine vessels and engines to take advantage of this loan assistance opportunity.  The loan must be completed and executed by August 31, 2012.  

 

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act award provided $5 million to the loan assistance program to reduce harmful diesel emissions by helping owners upgrade or replace their older vehicles, equipment, or engines.  This joint program between the ARB and the California Pollution Control Financing Authority (CPCFA) provides competitive-rate loan opportunities in the current tight credit market to small businesses. 

 

The CPCFA will process the loans through its existing California Capital Access Program (CalCAP).  Interested borrowers can apply for a loan by completing application at a participating CalCAP lender.  The lenders determine the applicant’s eligibility for a loan. For a list of participating financial institutions, go to:

Borrowers may also be eligible for local non-federal grant awards which can be combined with this loan assistance program.  For example, Carl Moyer grants would be eligible. 

 

The following fact sheet links further describe the program:
 

• Off-Road Diesel Vehicles
