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 developed 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.

On September 4, 2015, ARB released the proposed "Cap-and-Trade Auction Proceeds: Funding Guidelines for Agencies that Administer California Climate Investments." ARB staff presented these Funding Guidelines at a public Board hearing on September 24, 2015. The final version of the document reflects the Board's minor revisions from the hearing.

The California Climate Investments logo and name serve to bring under a single brand the many investments whose funding comes from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. The logo represents a consolidated and coordinated initiative by the State to address climate change by reducing greenhouse gases while also creating new jobs and supporting more sustainable communities. Guidelines for the usage of the CCI logo can be found here.
