arbcombo -- Public Workshop on FY 2017-18 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives Posted: 13 Sep 2017 15:45:04
The FY 2017 18 Funding Plan will describe CARB’s proposed investments from the following clean transportation incentive funding sources. • The $28.64 million Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). • $25 million Volkswagen settlement funding for the zero emission vehicle (ZEV) aspects of vehicle replacement programs. • The new $50 million Zero/Near Zero Emission Warehouse Program created by Senate Bill (SB) 132 (Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review, Chapter 7, Statutes of 2017). • The $560 million proposed appropriation for Low Carbon Transportation Program using Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds currently pending before the Legislature. Additional proposed Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds funding for two new CARB incentive programs is also pending before the Legislature: one to reduce agricultural sector emissions and another for air districts to reduce emissions to achieve early actions for the community emission reduction programs developed pursuant to Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017). These new programs are outside of the scope of this workshop and the FY 2017 18 Clean Transportation Incentives Funding Plan. CARB will launch separate public processes focused for these new programs shortly. The meeting will be held at the following time and place: Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2017 Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building Sierra 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. This meeting will be webcast for those unable to attend in person. The broadcast can be accessed on the day of the workshop at https://video.calepa.ca.gov/. Staff plans to post a draft Funding Plan outlining its proposals on project categories, funding allocations, and project criteria for this funding about a week before the workshop on CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation/AQIP website at https://www.arb.ca.gov/aqip/. The draft document will include a workshop agenda. Staff’s presentation will be posted on this website the morning of the workshop. If you have questions regarding the workshop, please contact Andrew Panson at (916) 323-2809 or email@example.com. Background: AQIP: AQIP is a mobile source incentive program that focuses on reducing criteria pollutant and diesel particulate emissions with concurrent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. CARB was appropriated $28.64 million for AQIP in the 2017 State Budget. Volkswagen Settlement for ZEV Aspects of Vehicle Replacement Programs: CARB has entered into several partial consent decrees with Volkswagen to resolve claims against the company for equipping its diesel vehicles with illegal defeat devices. One of the partial consent decrees requires Volkswagen 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 was appropriated $25 million to implement this part of the settlement in the 2017 State Budget. Zero/Near-Zero Emission Warehouse Program: CARB was appropriated $50 million in one-time funding for a new Zero/Near Zero Emission Warehouse Program. These funds are to be used for a competitive funding program to advance implementation of zero- and near zero emission warehouses and technology with a requirement for a one-to-one match resulting in $100 million for projects. The Legislature directed CARB to develop criteria for implementing this program using the AQIP funding plan process. Low Carbon Transportation: 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. CARB’s potential Low Carbon Transportation appropriation is still pending before the Legislature.
