The MSRC’s Local Government Partnership Program deadline is fast approaching - submittals are due by 11:59 pm on March 2. The program offers local agencies that participate in the AB 2766 Motor Vehicle Subvention Fund Program a pro-rata share of the $21 million in available funding to “jump-start” clean transportation projects that will be needed to successfully implement the 2016 Air Quality Management Plan developed by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
For agencies that serve larger populations, eligible project categories include: light-duty zero emission vehicle purchase or leases; medium- and heavy-duty zero emission vehicle purchases; near-zero emission heavy-duty alternative fuel vehicle purchases and repowers; electric vehicle charging infrastructure installation; and alternative fuel infrastructure construction or expansion. In addition to these types of projects, agencies that serve smaller populations can use funding for: traffic signal coordination and synchronization; bicycle active transportation; and first mile/last mile strategies.
A recording of the MSRC’s webcast highlighting the program’s requirements is available here. The solicitation is available here. The MSRC will consider proposals on a rolling basis, so applicants are encouraged to submit their proposals as soon as possible.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get your jurisdiction’s set-aside share of Clean Transportation Funding!
