gmbond -- Small Fleets (1 to 3 Trucks) Can Apply Now for Prop 1B Grants Posted: 01 Nov 2013 17:08:04
SMALL Fleets in the Goods Movement Sector: •ARB has changed the scope of the current Proposition 1B solicitation to include small fleets (1 to 3 trucks). •Small fleets can apply now for a grant to replace their truck in 2014. •Submit your application to a local agency by Thursday, December 12, 2013 if you meet the eligibility requirements. Basic requirements are: 75% operation within California for the past 2 years Move goods as part of a sales transaction Commit to at least 50% travel within the four California trade corridors Drayage trucks (including dray-off trucks) are not eligible •Small fleets (1 to 3 trucks) will be given priority. Large fleets may also continue to apply during this solicitation. •We are also expanding this solicitation to allow funding for all engine model years that are 2006 and older. If small fleets meet the Proposition 1B goods movement eligibility requirements, they can now apply for a grant that would enable them to receive funding in 2014, and demonstrate a good faith effort to comply with the Truck and Bus Regulation. ARB will be issuing a regulatory advisory soon to provide guidance on how it will handle compliance for fleets that make such good faith efforts to comply with the Truck and Bus Regulation deadline. For more information, please see the Proposition 1B website at: www.arb.ca.gov/gmbond. Background: The Proposition 1B: Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program is a partnership between the State Air Resources Board (ARB) and local agencies(like air districts and ports) to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California’s trade corridors. ARB provides funding to eligible agencies; those agencies then offer financial incentives to owners of equipment used in freight movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies prior to regulatory requirements.
