1. Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Draft Funding Guidelines
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) has released a draft version of the Funding Guidelines for agencies that are administering appropriations from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF).
The draft Funding Guidelines consist of three volumes focused on: accountability and transparency; maximizing benefits to disadvantaged communities; and reporting to document greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions, co-benefits, and other project outcomes. The draft Funding Guidelines will be discussed at a public workshop on Monday, June 22, 2015, in Sacramento that is also available through webcast. The deadline for public comments on the draft Funding Guidelines is June 29, 2015. Following the workshop and public comment period, ARB staff will update and release a revised draft of the Funding Guidelines. On Thursday, July 23, 2015, the Board will hear public testimony and consider approval of the Funding Guidelines.
