Funding Guidelines for Administering Agencies

State law requires ARB to develop guidance for all State agencies that receive appropriations from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund, including guidance on reporting, quantification methods, and maximizing benefits to disadvantaged communities. To comply with this law, ARB is developing Funding Guidelines to help these agencies use their appropriations in a way that reduces greenhouse gases, furthers the purposes of AB 32, maximizes benefits to disadvantaged communities, and meets the other statutory requirements.

ARB will post a discussion draft of the Funding Guidelines and will be holding a workshop for public comment.  The workshop details are provided below:
