California Climate Investments Low Carbon Transportation Funding

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.  CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation Program is designed to accelerate the transition to low carbon freight and passenger transportation with a priority on providing health and economic benefits to California’s most disadvantaged communities.  These investments support the State’s goals of a 50 percent reduction in petroleum use in vehicles by 2030 and reducing short-lived climate pollutants, as well as the goal to deploy 5 million ZEVs by 2030.  These investments also reduce ozone precursor emissions and toxic diesel particulate emissions, supporting the State’s goals in these areas.

The Legislature has appropriated nearly $1.6 billion to CARB for Low Carbon Transportation projects over the past five budget cycles.  These funds are being used to fund zero-emission and plug-in hybrid passenger vehicles through CVRP; light-duty vehicle equity projects to increase access to clean transportation in disadvantaged communities and for lower‑income Californians; deployment incentives for clean trucks and buses using zero-emission, hybrid, and low nitrogen oxides (NOx) technologies; and advanced technology demonstration projects for freight trucks and equipment.

Annual Funding Plan

The annual funding plan is each year’s blueprint for expending Low Carbon Transportation and AQIP funds appropriated to CARB in the State budget.  The plan describes CARB’s policy drivers and vision for advanced technology mobile source investments, eligible project categories and criteria, project funding allocations, program implementation details, and provides the justification for these investments.  The Funding Plan will also address the requirements of AB 1550 (Gomez, Chapter 369, Statutes of 2016) related to disadvantaged and low-income community investments.
