The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a public workshop on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017-18 Funding Plan for Low Carbon Transportation Investments, Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP), and the potential $25 million Volkswagen settlement funds for zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) aspects of vehicle replacement programs. The meeting will be held at the following time and place: Date: Thursday, April 6, 2017 Time: 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building Coastal Hearing Room, Second Floor 1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814 A meeting notice for the workshop is posted at: https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aqip/meetings/meetings.htm.

CARB staff plans to post a discussion document outlining its draft recommendations on project categories, funding allocations, and project criteria for the Funding Plan several days before the workshop on CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation/AQIP website.

Background: The Low Carbon Transportation program is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged communities. California Climate Investments support CARB’s advanced technology, clean transportation incentive programs which are designed accelerate the transition to low carbon freight and passenger transportation with a priority on providing health and economic benefits to California’s disadvantaged communities. The Governor’s proposed FY 2017-18 Budget would direct $363 million for CARB to continue Low Carbon Transportation investments. AQIP is a mobile source incentive program that focuses on reducing criteria pollutant and diesel particulate emissions with concurrent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The Governor’s proposed Budget includes $28.6 million for AQIP. One of the pending consent decrees to resolve claims against Volkswagen for equipping its diesel vehicles with defeat devices would require the company to pay CARB $25 million to fund “the ZEV-related aspects of the EFMP Plus Up Program or the ZEV-related aspects of similar vehicle replacement programs.” CARB staff intends to include a proposal for how to spend this $25 million in the FY 2017-18 Funding Plan contingent on court approval of the consent decree.
