Project Background for Access Clean California
The goals of Access Clean California (formerly named the One-Stop-Shop Pilot Project) are to work with local community-based organizations (CBOs) and community leaders to help increase awareness of Clean Transportation Equity funding opportunities, continue to build local community capacity, and streamline access to Clean Transportation Equity projects. These investments help to reduce barriers to participation, expand education, and raise awareness in the most impacted and underinvested communities.
Guiding Legislation/Policy Drivers
Access Clean California first began as a priority recommendation in CARB’s SB 350 Guidance Document. Specifically, the third priority recommendation from the SB 350 Barriers Report is to develop regional ‘One-Stop-Shops’ to increase consumer awareness and provide technical assistance. The goal of this recommendation is to:
- Increase consumer awareness of State’s clean transportation and related clean energy incentive programs;
- Provide consumers technical assistance to apply for and participate in CARB clean transportation programs; and
- Focus on providing coordinated community-based outreach and education to maximize program participation and promote advanced technology vehicle adoption among low-income residents.
