More Information


Cap-and-Trade Auction Proceeds Low Carbon Transportation Funding:  Since FY 2013-14, Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds have supported clean transportation incentive programs designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Low Carbon Transportation funding has allowed CARB to expand the types of projects previously funded through AQIP. These investments 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. To date, over 55 percent of CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation funding has been in or benefitting low-income and disadvantaged communities, including low-income households.

The Legislature has appropriated over $2.1 billion to CARB for Low Carbon Transportation projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the past seven budget cycles. The proposed "Governor's Budget Summary 2021-22" includes $465 million for Low Carbon Transportation investments using Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds from the 2020-21 and 2021-22 budget years.

  AQIP is a voluntary, mobile source incentive program that focuses on reducing criteria pollutant and diesel particulate emissions with concurrent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The Governor’s proposed State Budget for FY 2021-22 includes $28.64 million for AQIP investments.

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, and program implementation details, and provides the justification for these investments.
