Draft Cap-and-Trade Auction Proceeds Fourth Investment Plan Released for Public Comment
Every three years, the Department of Finance, in consultation with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and other State agencies, submits an Investment Plan to the Legislature to guide the investment of Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds. The Cap-and-Trade Auction Proceeds Fourth Investment Plan (Fourth Investment Plan) will cover Fiscal Years 2022-23 through 2024-25 and is due to the Legislature in January 2022. Priority investment types identified in the Investment Plan do not guarantee funding but rather provide recommendations to the Legislature on potential funding opportunities to consider.

The Administration has released a Draft Fourth Investment Plan for a 30-day public comment period. Please submit written comments by September 17, 2021 at 5:00 PM (PDT).
