Annual Report to the Legislature



Assembly Bill 1532 (Pérez, Chapter 807, Statutes of 2012) requires the Department of Finance to submit an annual report to the Legislature on the status and outcomes of projects funded from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF). Agencies submit program and project level data annually pursuant to ARB's Funding Guidelines for Agencies that Administer California Climate Investments. ARB compiles the program and project data from all agencies and works with the Department of Finance to prepare the "Annual Report to the Legislature", which is due in March every year.

The Annual Report describes the status of California Climate Investments at the program and project level. The Report includes:

  • GHG reductions expected from project investments,
  • Statistics on benefits to disadvantaged communities,
  • Demand for funding,
  • Financial leveraging,
  • Fiscal data, and
  • Other key data.

2017 Annual Report

The 2017 Annual Report provides a summary of program outcomes and fiscal data as of November 30, 2016. In addition to summary statistics, the Report includes project profiles that highlight projects on the ground that are reducing GHGs, providing disadvantaged community benefits, and delivering other co-benefits throughout the State.

ARB is also releasing the GGRF Project Map, an interactive map displaying California Climate Investments, and a downloadable and searchable detailed project list. Those tools are updated with 2017 Report data, and are available below. Information included on both the map and the project list can be filtered by county or legislative district to create summary statistics.

The 2017 Annual Report provides program accomplishments through November 30, 2016.


2016 Annual Report

The 2016 Annual Report provides program accomplishments through December 2015, and fiscal data as of November 1, 2015 unless otherwise stated.
