Open Solicitation, Prop 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

The South Coast Air Quality Management District has announced an open solicitation period for the Proposition 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program Ships at Berth and Cargo Handling Equipment funding category. See the Program website (http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmbond) for more information.

The $1b Proposition 1B:  Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (Program) is a partnership between the State Air Resources Board (ARB) and local agencies (like air districts and seaports) to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California's trade corridors.  Local agencies apply to ARB for funding, then those agencies offer financial incentives to owners of equipment used in freight movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies.  Projects funded under this Program must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation.
