Coming Soon: CA Air Resource Board - Clean Mobility Voucher Pilot Program.
Clean Mobility Voucher Pilot Program
The CMO Voucher Pilot Program is administered and implemented through a partnership between CARB and the Program Administrator, who was selected through a competitive CARB grant solicitation process. CARB has set the program requirements and eligibility criteria for entities applying for CMO voucher funds through a comprehensive public work group process. The Program Administrator is responsible to verify the applicants meet the project eligibility requirements set forth in the Implementation Manual, reserve the voucher amounts on a first-come, first-served basis, and disburse voucher awards after applicants submit all the supporting documentations and required items on a reimbursement basis. The CMO Voucher Pilot Program will provide funding and capacity-building in support of small-scale clean mobility projects, such as electric carsharing, bikesharing, vanpooling, and other clean mobility options, as well as community transportation needs assessment projects in disadvantaged communities and eligible low-income and tribal communities. Funds will be used to purchase or lease new or used vehicles, bicycles, scooters, and other clean mobility options along with associated equipment, infrastructure, and operating costs to implement clean mobility services. The Program Administrator will also provide training, technical assistance, learning tools, and information-sharing opportunities to build the capacity of under-resourced organizations to enhance mobility access in their communities.
The lead applicant must be either a public agency, non-profit organization or California Native American Tribe.
