Incentives and Transportation Solutions for Emissions Reduction - MSRC
These transportation solutions provide $14 million in project awards annually to businesses and local governments to improve emissions and particulate levels. They focus on a few transportation solutions each year in order to make a measurable impact. 2007 programs focused on
Funding for Transportation SolutionsProposals most likely to be funded are those that offer significant measurable vehicle emission reductions, are cost-effective and have considerable, verified co-funding.
Most of the 2007 programs are only available for applications through May or June, so check the website for current funding opportunities: http://www.cleantransportationfunding.org/?fa=proposal
Cynthia Ravenstein handles award contracts and the staff of four assists with several groups that include elected officials, a technical advisory committee and an outreach committee. Businesses are encouraged to call the office for helpful advice about applying for funding programs and assistance with questions about contracts .
Off Road Transportation SolutionsClean Transportation Funding™ is available to manufacturers of Off-Road Diesel Emission Control Systems. This transportation solution, entitled the “Showcase Program”, is designed to encourage manufacturers of qualifying retrofit devices to participate with construction equipment fleet owners in retrofitting their engines with diesel emission control devices to reduce diesel particulate matter (PM) or diesel PM plus oxides of nitrogen (NOx). The goal of this program is to demonstrate new emission control systems that will earn California Air Resources Board (CARB) verified status as well as achieve significant near term emission reductions from off-road construction equipment.
This program is open to transportation solution manufacturers who have previously received verification from either the United States Environmental Protection Agency‘s (U.S. EPA) Voluntary Retrofit Program, CARB’s Verification Procedure, or the Verminderung der Emissionen von Realmaschinen im Tunnelbau (VERT) program. Fulfillment of this requirement may be from a prior on-road or off-road retrofit device verification.
The Off-Road Diesel Retrofit “Showcase” Program is unique in that CARB and the MSRC will endeavor to match manufacturers’ proposed retrofit devices with participating construction equipment fleet operators. CARB has developed a profile of construction equipment sought for participation in the Showcase Program, as described in Section I.F. Retrofit devices with the broadest range of off-road transportation solutions are most desirable for demonstration in the Showcase Program.
Participation in the Showcase requires completion and submital of manufacturer qualifications and a participation application. Templates to assist in application preparation are available.

Natural GasNatural Gas Vehicle Home Refueling Infrastructure Incentive
The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Governing Board approved an incentive program which matches the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) buy down program for the purchase of a compressed natural gas (CNG) home refueling appliance (HRA) manufactured by Fuelmaker. The SCAQMD incentive program matches a $1,000 buy-down by the MSRC for a total of $2,000 buy-down for consumers who reside in the SCAQMD jurisdictional boundaries. Specifically, the incentive buy-down program will apply to the purchase of up to 100 units through Fuelmaker and the lease of up to 300 units through Honda.
