The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) is pleased to announce its Grant Solicitation for the Off-Road Advanced Technology Demonstration Project. The opportunity was approved by the Board as part of the FY2016-17 Funding Plan for Low Carbon Transportation and Fuels Investments and the Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). Up to $17 million is available for this project, which will provide greenhouse gas (GHG), criteria pollutant, and toxic air contaminant emission reduction benefits to disadvantaged communities. Along with the separate On-Road Advanced Technology Demonstration Project which was released on May 19, 2017, it is part of a $34 million allocation for advanced technology freight demonstrations.
Eligible projects will be those that demonstrate advanced port equipment, zero-emission cargo handling equipment, zero-emission ground support equipment, and zero-emission freight locomotive equipment. Non-freight categories such as construction equipment, agricultural equipment, and off-road passenger transportation equipment will also be eligible for a smaller portion of the funding, although the focus will be on technologies that are freight enabling. California-based public agencies such as air districts, ports, and local government entities or agencies as well as California-based non-profit organizations with expertise implementing large scale advanced technology demonstration projects and the requisite knowledge of advanced technology off-road operations may apply.
