Grants to California public agencies 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.

AB2766 FY 2021-22 will contain two major programs: the Clean Air Management Program (CAM) for fixed asset projects that yield direct motor vehicle emission reduction and the Clean Vehicle Program (CVP) to incentivize the purchase of light duty electric vehicles within MBARD jurisdiction. 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).

Clean Air Management Program: Eligible projects must be fixed assets that will yield quantifiable motor vehicle emission reductions. Typical fixed asset projects include roundabout design/construction and adaptive traffic control systems. The Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) component will offer incentives for the purchase or lease of medium to heavy-duty electric vehicles for public agency and private fleets.

Clean Vehicle Program will be comprised of:

  • The Monterey Bay Clean Light-Duty EV Incentive Program will offer incentives for the purchase or lease of new and used alternative fuel vehicles. The incentive program will only be offered to residents of Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties.
  • The Light-Duty EV Voucher Replacement Incentive Program for Public Agencies will be used for the purchase or lease of new and used light-duty electric vehicles.
