Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program

Intent or Criteria: The $1 billion 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 (map).  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.

Guidelines:  2015 Program Guidelines

Program Status:  ARB has allocated approximately $980 million for local agency projects and ARB's administration costs over multiple years. The status of each grant is summarized on the attached December 2015 semi-annual update for the Department of Finance.

Administrative Agency:  California Environmental Protection Agency / Air Resources Board.

Recipient Agencies:  ARB awarded funds to local agencies, including air districts and seaports.

Accountability Plan:  The Department of Finance approved ARB's three-part accountability structure for this Program, required by Executive Order S-02-07, in February 2008.

Proposition 1B Filter Substrate Replacement Program

ARB recently notified private truck fleets with recalled Cleaire LongMile filters. The notification is to determine the affected owner’s interest in replacing the recalled filter and to initially assess the fleet’s eligibility based on Proposition 1B program requirements. If you were not contacted, but have a truck with a recalled LongMile filter, please send an email to gmbond@arb.ca.gov and provide your company name, email address and phone number.

When can I use my Proposition 1B-funded truck for compliance?

Equipment previously funded by Proposition 1B may now be eligible for compliance with the Statewide Truck and Bus Regulation. Allowable Use of Equipment (revised September 24, 2014) summarizes the allowable use of previously Proposition 1B-funded equipment for fleet compliance with the Regulation, dependent on when the equipment became operational.
