Background: AQIP is a voluntary incentive program administered by ARB to fund clean vehicle and equipment projects through 2023. Each year the Board approves the AQIP Funding Plan, which serves as the blueprint for expending AQIP funds during the current fiscal year. In 2012, the Legislature passed and Governor Brown signed into law three bills – AB 1532 (Pérez, Chapter 807), Senate Bill (SB) 535 (De León, Chapter 830), and SB 1018 (Budget and Fiscal Review Committee, Chapter 39) – that establish the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to receive auction proceeds and to provide the framework for how the auction proceeds will be administered. The Governor’s Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2014-15 includes $200 million for low carbon transportation projects that expand existing efforts and provide benefits to disadvantaged communities. If you have any general questions regarding the development the Fiscal Year 2014-15 AQIP Funding Plan, please contact Ms. Lisa Macumber (916) 323-2881 firstname.lastname@example.org .
