International Trade News - Truck Funding Available:
Proposition 1B Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program (Program). Six local air districts are offering financial incentives to owners of trucks used in goods movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies through truck replacement or engine repower projects. These funds are available for eligible trucks operating primarily in the four high priority trade corridors in the Bay Area, Central Valley, Los Angeles/Inland Empire, and San Diego/Border corridors.
Incentives for truck electrification infrastructure projects will also be offered.
The local agencies will be accepting applications beginning August 26, 2013, for a limited time. Please see the Program website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmbond for more information and how to apply for funds.
In addition, owners of fleets of 40 or fewer trucks may be eligible for loan assistance, without the Prop. 1B grant limitations regarding goods movement and operation in the trade corridors. Please see the following for more information and how to apply: http://www.arb.ca.gov/ba/loan/on-road/on-road.htm or http://www.treasurer.ca.gov/cpcfa/calcap/arb/index.asp.
Background: The Proposition 1B: Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program is a partnership between the State Air Resources Board (ARB) and local agencies (like air districts and ports) to quickly reduce air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement along California’s trade corridors. ARB provides funding to eligible agencies; those agencies then offer financial incentives to owners of equipment used in freight movement to upgrade to cleaner technologies prior to regulatory requirements.
