The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) invites you to participate in a public workshop on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017-18 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives. The FY 2017-18 Funding Plan will describe CARB’s proposed investments from the following clean transportation incentive funding sources:
- The $28.64 million Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP).
- $25 million Volkswagen settlement funding for the zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) aspects of vehicle replacement programs.
- The new $50 million Zero/Near-Zero Emission Warehouse Program created by Senate Bill (SB) 132 (Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review, Chapter 7, Statutes of 2017).
- The $560 million proposed appropriation for Low Carbon Transportation Program using Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds currently pending before the Legislature.
Additional proposed Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds funding for two new CARB incentive programs is also pending before the Legislature: one to reduce agricultural sector emissions and another for air districts to reduce emissions to achieve early actions for the community emission reduction programs developed pursuant to Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017). These new programs are outside of the scope of this workshop and the FY 2017-18 Clean Transportation Incentives Funding Plan. CARB will launch separate public processes focused for these new programs shortly.
The meeting will be held at the following time and place:
Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building
