CARROT Program

The CARROT Program was enacted in 2014 by the State Legislature for the DAQ to encourage fleet owners to reduce emissions from heavy-duty engines and non-road equipment. The Program assists the Division in carrying out its mission to protect public health and the environment from the harmful effects of air pollution from mobile sources. The CARROT Program provides incentives through grants, rebates, exchanges, and low-cost purchase programs.
