Background:  The Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) is
designed to support development and commercialization of advanced
technologies that are necessary to meet Californiaís air quality
and climate goals.  Established through the Alternative and
Renewable Fuel, Vehicle Technology, Clean Air, and Carbon
Reduction Act of 2007 (AB 118; NķŮez, Chapter 750, Statutes of
2007), the program focuses on reducing criteria pollutant and
diesel particulate pollution with concurrent reductions in
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The AQIP program is expanding. 
Originally funded at around $30 million dollars per year, the
program almost tripled in funding last year to about $90 million
dollars, primarily to support the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project
(CVRP), which provides incentives for the purchases of zero and
near-zero emissions passenger vehicles. 

The Governorís FY 2014-15 proposed budget identifies $200 million
from the Stateís share of auction proceeds under ARBís Cap and
Trade program to be spent on low carbon transportation projects
that reduce GHG emissions primarily in disadvantaged communities.
 Because the Governorís goals for the investment of Cap and Trade
proceeds are consistent with the established objectives of the
AQIP program, and because of the past success of the AQIP program
structure, this year staff is combining the two funding sources
(AQIP and Low Carbon Transportation Investments) into one funding
plan.
