projects.  Additional work group meetings may be scheduled as

Background:  AQIP is a voluntary incentive program administered
by ARB to fund clean vehicle and equipment projects through 2023.
 Each year the Board approves the AQIP Funding Plan, which serves
as the blueprint for expending AQIP funds during the current
fiscal year.  

In 2012, the Legislature passed and Governor Brown signed into
law three bills – AB 1532 (Pérez, Chapter 807), Senate Bill (SB)
535 (De León, Chapter 830), and SB 1018 (Budget and Fiscal Review
Committee, Chapter 39) – that establish the Greenhouse Gas
Reduction Fund to receive auction proceeds and to provide the
framework for how the auction proceeds will be administered.  The
Governor’s Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2014-15 includes $200
million for low carbon transportation projects that expand
existing efforts and provide benefits to disadvantaged
communities.

If you have any general questions regarding the development the
Fiscal Year 2014-15 AQIP Funding Plan, please contact Ms. Lisa
Macumber (916) 323-2881 lmacumbe@arb.ca.gov .
