The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a work group meeting on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021-22 Long-Term Heavy-Duty Investment Strategy. The Strategy, built upon previous years’ work, is required under Senate Bill 1403, the California Clean Truck, Bus, and Off ‑Road Vehicle and Equipment Technology Program (Lara, Chapter 370, Statutes of 2018), and includes an update on school buses operating throughout the State. This document will be incorporated into the upcoming FY 2021-22 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives. The meeting agenda is available, and if there are handouts, they will be posted to the program website ahead of the meeting.

The work group meeting will be held via Zoom webinar at the following date and time:

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. Additionally, these incentives provide important early steps to transform the transportation sector, supporting Governor Newsom’s recent Executive Order N-79-20 calling on the State to accelerate the transformation to a zero-emission transportation fleet. Lastly, these investments reduce ozone precursor emissions and toxic diesel particulate emissions, supporting the State’s goals in these areas.

Annual Funding Plan:  The annual funding plan is each year’s blueprint for expending Low Carbon Transportation and Air Quality Improvement Program 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. If CARB is appropriated Low Carbon Transportation funding, the Funding Plan will also address the requirements of Assembly Bill 1550 (Gomez, Chapter 369, Statutes of 2016) related to disadvantaged and low-income community investments.
