Agenda Item #
16-6-1:
 Public Meeting to Consider the Proposed Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Funding Plan for Low Carbon Transportation and Fuels Investments and the Air Quality Improvement Program

The Board will consider the Proposed Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Funding Plan for allocating the Low Carbon Transportation and Fuels funding and the Air Quality Improvement Program funding in the Governor’s proposed State Budget. These programs provide incentives for clean vehicle and equipment projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution with a priority to benefit disadvantaged communities. Staff's proposal builds on investments from previous funding cycles by continuing incentives for zero-emission and plug-in passenger cars, clean trucks and buses, and advanced technology freight demonstration projects. A new addition this year is proposed funding for very low carbon fuel production incentives. The proposed Funding Plan also includes a long-term plan for the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project and related light-duty vehicle incentives as required by State law.
