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: 

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.

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.
