Grants to California public agencies and individuals in eligible counties for projects and purchases that promote vehicle emission reduction. Funding is available for traffic signal coordination, zero-emission vehicles, roundabout construction, planning, enforcement, monitoring, and technical studies. Projects must be implemented in Monterey, San Benito, or Santa Cruz Counties.
To be eligible, a project must reduce, or enable the reduction of motor vehicle ozone precursor pollutants and particulate matter (10 microns in diameter or less). Emission reduction projects must enable the reduction of ozone precursor emissions (ROG, NOx) and PM from vehicle sources.
AB2766 FY21 will contain two major components: the Clean Air Management Program for fixed asset projects that yield direct motor vehicle emission reduction and the Clean Vehicle Program to incentivize the purchase of light, medium, and heavy-duty electric vehicles within MBARD jurisdiction.
Clean Air Management Program: These projects are identified as fixed asset for which travel activity data is available to calculate the expected reductions in motor vehicle emissions. Typical projects include roundabout design/construction, adaptive traffic signal control system installations, and fleet electrification. Projects in this category are scored based on calculated emissions reduced.
