Appropriations

The Legislature appropriates money from the GGRF to administering agencies for programs that result in GHG emission reductions and further the purpose of AB 32 through continuous appropriations enacted in Senate Bill (SB) 862 (Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review, Chapter 36, Statutes of 2014), and through the Budget Act. 

  • The first appropriations in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013-14 provided over $70 million to programs. 
  • Subsequent appropriations in FY 2014-15 included over $850 million, resulting in a significant expansion of the number and types of California Climate Investments. 
  • In FY 2015-16, the Legislature and Governor appropriated approximately $1.3 billion, which provided funding to continue a subset of programs established in the previous fiscal years. 
  • In FY 2016-17, the Legislature and Governor appropriated over $1.1 billion for existing and new programs. 
  • In FY 2017-18, the Legislature and Governor appropriated over $2.7 billion for existing programs and expanded the program to include investments in community air protection, renewable energy in the agricultural sector, climate readiness adaptation, fire protection, and conservation easements. 

The Governor’s proposed budget for FY 2018-19 includes $1.25 billion in funding for California Climate Investments. To view the proposed budget, click here.
