Bay Area Air Quality Management District offers funding opportunities for On-Road Clean Air Vehicles, Infrastructure, and Off-Road Equipment to reduce air pollution in the bay area. On Road and Infrastructure opportunities include Trucks, Electrical Vehicle Charging Stations, Heavy Duty EVs, Light Duty EVs, Hydrogen Fueling stations, and School Bus upgrades. Off Road Equipment includes marine, agriculture and locomotive equipment.
The Strategic Growth Council's Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program funds land-use, housing, transportation, and land preservation projects to support infill and compact development that reduces greenhouse gas ("GHG") emissions. These projects facilitate the reduction of the emissions of GHGs by improving mobility options and increasing infill development, which decrease vehicle miles traveled and associated greenhouse gas and other emissions, and by reducing land conversion, which would result in emissions of greenhouse gases.
The primary goal of the Air Resources Board's (ARB's) Lower-Emission School Bus Program is to reduce school children's exposure to both cancer-causing and smog-forming pollution. The program provides grant funding for new, safer school buses and to put air pollution control equipment (i.e., retrofit devices) on buses that are already on the road.
The Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (GMERP) is an incentive program sponsored by a $1 billion state bond measure Proposition 1B passed by voters in 2006. The Air Resources Board (ARB) and the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) are program partners offering assistance to owners and operators of on-road heavy-duty vehicles and locomotives with the purchase of newer emission equipment and technologies.
The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program) provides grant funding for cleaner-than-required engines and equipment. Grants are administered by local air districts. ARB works collaboratively with the districts and other stakeholders to set Guidelines and ensure the Program reduces pollution and provides cleaner air for Californians. The Carl Moyer Program achieves reductions in emissions of key pollutants which are necessary for California to meet its clean air commitments under regulatory requirements.
The Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) offers point-of-sale incentives for clean trucks and buses in California. HVIP dealers offer reduced-price vehicles directly to purchasers. Purchasers do not need to submit proposals, complicated paper work or wait to be reimbursed. Incentives are locked in at the time of the purchase order. Dealers process the required documentation.
California is leading the nation in clean vehicle adoption with more plug-in electric vehicles on its roadways than any other state. This shift away from gasoline and diesel brings many environmental and economic benefits, including less air pollution and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
The $50 million Bay Area Transit-Oriented Affordable Housing Fund provides financing for the development of affordable housing and other vital community services near transit lines throughout the Bay Area. Through the Fund, developers can access flexible, affordable capital to purchase or improve available property near transit lines for the development of affordable housing, retail space and other critical services, such as child care centers, fresh food outlets and health clinics.
Loans enrolled in the On-Road Heavy-Duty Vehicle Air Quality Loan Program can be used to finance heavy-duty trucks and buses (over 14,000 GVWR) equipped with engines certified to specified engine emission standards for 2007 and newer model year engines, and diesel exhaust retrofits. The California Capital Access Program (CalCAP) together with the California Air Resources Board may provide up to 100% coverage on certain loan defaults.
Our mission is to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles traveling in, to and through San Mateo County, reducing vehicle emissions resulting in improved air quality. Our goal is to help people find ways to get to work that are faster, cheaper, and/or easier through commuter information, employer programs, and city transportation demand management partnerships.
