At their February 15, 2018 meeting, the MSRC extended the deadline for their Local Government Partnership Program from March 2 to August 2. Several eligible cities had communicated timing difficulties faced in getting on their Councils’ calendars in time to meet the original date. Additionally, the MSRC noted that some applicants might face budget scheduling issues.
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. Dozens of applications have been received to date. The solicitation is available here: http://www.cleantransportationfunding.org/current-rfps-solicitations. The MSRC will consider proposals on a rolling basis, so applicants are still encouraged to submit their proposals as soon as possible.
