The current funding available for FY 2016-17 is $6 million, with a funding split of up to $5 million for a Statewide project and up to $1 million for local projects. The Statewide project is a project that is at least regional or multi-regional in size to begin and by design has plans to expand throughout California. The Statewide project is available to lower-income consumers with an emphasis to outreach to lower-income consumers in disadvantaged communities. The local project(s) can be a region of the state, air basin, or county. The local project primarily benefits or serves a specific disadvantaged community but is open to lower-income consumers.
This pilot project is funded by the Low Carbon Transportation program and is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment — particularly in lower-income and disadvantaged communities.
This solicitation is open to federal, state or local government entities or agencies, and California nonprofit organizations with expertise in the implementation of financing programs, grant programs, and general knowledge of CARB’s clean vehicle programs.
Applications are due to CARB by 5:00 p.m. (PST), Thursday, July 6, 2017.
