The Climate Heat Impact Response Program is a
4-step process, outlined below:
Emission impact is determined by data reported to CARB by participants. For more details about what information is reported, see our Reporting page.
Data is reported to several different local and state agencies and utilities. CARB will work with these entities to gather data in order to calculate emission impacts.
CARB will use a weighted criteria emission calculation to determine the total emissions associated with each even on an annual basis. This will then be used to determine the amount of funding needed to mitigate the excess emissions. If possible, CARB will also identify the location of where the emissions occurred.
CARB held an initial public workgroup on September 16, 2021 to provide an overview of the draft CHIRP plan and to seek guidance from communities and other stakeholders on potential eligible project categories. More specific public engagement will be held soon to further define potential projects and the meeting notice will be posted on the Meetings page.
