Cities Encouraged to Provide Input to Air Resources Board on Cap-and-Trade Transportation Projects

September 29, 2014
The FY 2014-15 state budget provides funding from the state’s share of Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds for low carbon transportation projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions primarily in disadvantaged communities.
 
The Air Resources Board (ARB) is seeking input on transportation projects funded by these proceeds.
 
In June 2014, the ARB approved the Fiscal Year 2014-15 Funding Plan for the Air Quality Improvement Program and Low Carbon Transportation Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Fund Investments. These will provide up to $9 million in funding for Light-Duty Pilot Projects, up to $25 million for Heavy-Duty Pilot Projects, and up to $50 million for Advanced Technology Freight Demonstration Projects.
 
Public input will help develop the projects further starting this fall through a series of work group meetings and individual stakeholder discussions. The work groups will discuss the project design and scope of work for each project solicitation.
 
City officials that are interested in participating can join the work group email list. Please contact Stella Ling-Taylor with ARB and indicate which of the following email list(s) you would like to join:
  • FY 2014-15 Funding Plan Implementation
  • Car Sharing and Mobility Options in Disadvantaged Communities
  • Vehicle Retirement and Replacement Plus-Up
  • Light-Duty Financing Assistance Programs
  • Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Pilot Projects in Disadvantaged Communities
  • Zero-Emission Drayage Truck Demonstration
  • Multi-Source Facility Demonstration Projects
Additional resources are available on the League’s Cap-and-Trade webpage.
