 19-9-4:  Public Meeting to Consider Approval of the Proposed Fiscal Year 2019-20 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives for Low Carbon Transportation Investments and the Air Quality Improvement Program

The Board will consider the Proposed Fiscal Year 2019-20 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives. The plan describes investments from two related funding sources: the Low Carbon Transportation Program funded with Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds and the Air Quality Improvement Program. These programs provide incentives for clean vehicle and equipment projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution with a priority on benefitting disadvantaged and low-income communities and low-income households. 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 demonstration and pilot projects.
