Grants to California agencies and individuals in eligible counties for projects that help to reduce vehicle emissions. Funding is intended for activities that promote a reduction in emissions, including but not limited to traffic signal control systems, medium to heavy-duty vehicle electrification, and light-duty zero-emission vehicle incentives. Grants may also be used for related planning, monitoring, enforcement, and technical studies. Funds are available to public and private agencies as well as residents in Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz Counties.
The grant program has two categories: the Clean Air Management Program for fixed asset projects that yield direct motor vehicle emission reduction and the Pubic Agency EV Replacement Grant Program to incentivize the purchase of light-duty electric vehicles within MBARD jurisdiction.
Clean Air Management Program: Projects that directly reduce motor vehicle emissions must include travel activity data to enable District staff to calculate emission reductions over the project life. Examples of eligible Clean Air Management Program projects are:
Public Agency EV Replacement Program: Limited to one vehicle per agency. New vehicles may be purchased or leased (minimum of 2 years required).
