Grant Solicitation for a Third-Party Administrator for the F-gas Reduction Incentive Program (FRIP)

Applications accepted through August 7, 2023

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is pleased to announce a grant solicitation for a Third-Party Administrator (3PA) Grantee to implement the F-gas Reduction Incentive Program (FRIP), first established by Senate Bill (SB) 1013. The legislature appropriated funds to CARB in the 2022-2023 budget to increase the adoption of climate-friendly refrigerant technologies. FRIP’s goal is to promote the adoption climate-friendly refrigerant technologies by addressing market barriers that prevent their adoption while also reducing emissions of conventional high global warming potential (GWP) hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants.  

CARB is allocating $40 million to the commercial and industrial refrigeration sector due to the availability of market-ready ultra-low-GWP technologies and the potential for significant emission reductions from this sector. CARB will prioritize funding for small and independent businesses in low-income, disadvantaged, and rural communities. CARB is seeking a 3PA Grantee to implement FRIP. The 3PA Grantee will conduct outreach to potential applicants, provide technical expertise to FRIP applicants and recipients for the adoption of climate-friendly refrigeration technologies among other activities outlined in the solicitation.
