2022 Biennial Report to the Legislature on the AB 118 Air Quality Improvement Program
The report summarizes the California Air Resources Board (CARB) implementation of the Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP), a voluntary incentive program to reduce air pollution. CARB’s priority for AQIP is investing in advanced technologies critical to meeting California’s long-term air quality and climate change goals. The report includes information on the Truck Loan Assistance Program, Hybrid Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), and Clean Cars 4 All (CC4A). Originally created with funding from the first year of AQIP, the Truck Loan Assistance Program provides small business fleet owners with financing assistance to upgrade to newer trucks. HVIP provides funding to support the transformation to zero emission vehicles in the heavy duty on road market. The CC4A Program provides incentives to lower income California residents to scrap their older, high polluting vehicle and replace it with a newer, cleaner replacement vehicle or an alternative mobility option such as public transit passes. Project status information provided in the report covers AQIP from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2022.
