Low Carbon Transportation Investments and Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP)

This page last reviewed January 10, 2019

CA Climate Change InvenstmentsThe California Air Resources Board's (CARB) Low Carbon Transportation and AQIP programs provide mobile source incentives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, criteria pollutants, and air toxics through the development of advanced technology and clean transportation.

Low Carbon Transportation investments are supported by California Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds projects.  AQIP, established by the California Alternative and Renewable Fuel, Vehicle Technology, Clean Air, and Carbon Reduction Act of 2007 (AB 118, Statutes of 2007, Chapter 750), is a voluntary incentive program administered by CARB to fund clean vehicle and equipment projects, research of biofuels production. Per statute these funds must be used to further the purposes of Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32; Nuñez, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006).  Each year, the legislature appropriates funding to CARB for low carbon transportation and the air quality impacts of alternative fuels, and workforce training.  The AQIP Guidelines and annual Funding Plans guide CARB's implementation of AQIP.  For more information on clean transportation projects, incentives, and financing, please visit Moving California.
