How is the size of the Moyer RAP grant determined?
Moyer RAP grants are based on the “incremental cost” and the emission benefits of the project. The “incremental cost” refers to the portion of the project cost associated with purchasing and utilizing equipment sooner than otherwise required. The maximum funding amount will not exceed $100,000 per grant.

How are projects selected?
Projects are ranked in order of cost effectiveness and other factors such as geographic location and previous applications submitted.

How is the program administered?
The projects will be administered by the air quality agency in the area in which the project is located. The district will provide a contract, do the necessary inspections, and provide the funds.
