Grants and Funding Opportunities

Goods Movement Emission Reduction Funding Program (Proposition 1B)

To encourage the use of alternative fuel vehicles, the Port’s 2009 Incentive Program will provide  up to $12.5 million in funding for vehicles that run on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), and up to $10 million for vehicles that run on lithium battery electric power. 

  • Program goal is to put 450 alternative fuel trucks into service by the end of 2009
  • Will provide concessionaires up to $100,000 each LNG or CNG truck they purchase for use at the Port
  • Port terminal operators and concessionaires can also receive up to 80% of the negotiated cost for each electric truck they purchase for terminal or drayage truck use
  • Because the Port’s 1,000-truck goal will cost up to $100 million, the Port has applied for grants from the U.S. Department of Energy, the California Air Resources Board, and the California Energy Commission
  • The program is being administered by the South Coast Air Quality Management District

2008 Port of Los Angeles Incentive Program

On October 1, 2008, the Port of Los Angeles implemented a progressive ban on polluting trucks that could reduce air pollution at the Port by more than 80 percent when fully implemented in 2012. The Port’s 2008 Incentive Program pioneered efforts to promote a quick replacement of older, high-polluting trucks with newer, lower-emission trucks. 
Today, the Port of Los Angeles is ahead of schedule in its Clean Truck Program, thanks to the success of its 2008 Incentive Program which:

  • Offered $44 million in incentives to Concessionaires in 2008
  • Paid program participants $20,000 for each privately financed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) 2007-compliant truck used at the Port
  • Promoted efficient use of cleaner-burning trucks by offering program participants a yearly cash incentive payment of $10 per dray with their USEPA 2007-compliant truck if they reached a target of 300 qualified drays per year into and out of the Port of Los Angeles. The per-truck limit of payouts was set at $10,000
  • Attracted more than 2,200 trucks into service that meet or exceed 2007 USEPA emission standards by the end of 2008
  • Contributed to a 70 percent reduction in Port pollution in the first year of the program
