Medium- and Heavy-Duty On-and Off-Road Investments

CARB’s strategy for investments enables progress toward state climate change and air quality goals while promoting equity by ensuring investments benefit the communities most impacted by poor air quality and provide focused assistance to small fleets and owner-operators. 

The Annual Funding Plan serves as a blueprint for expending the incentive funds appropriated to CARB in the State budget. The plan establishes CARB’s priorities for the funding cycle, describes the projects CARB intends to fund and sets funding targets for each project. The Funding Plan is paired with regulatory guidelines to direct CARB’s implementation of programs so that it may achieve the widespread zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) adoption targets set in Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-79-20.

New advancements are expanding technology options and reaching new market segments, supporting the transformation of the on-road and off-road fleet to zero-emission to help meet California’s ambitious air quality and climate change goals. As planned and approved regulations continue the push for widespread adoption of zero-emission technologies, incentives play an increasingly important role in supporting the small businesses and fleets that would be challenged to purchase new vehicles or equipment without financial assistance.
