The F-Gas Reduction Incentive Program seeks to promote the adoption of climate-friendly refrigerant technologies in retail food facilities in California by alleviating the barriers to their widespread adoption, namely the higher incremental cost and lack of familiarity.
The FRIP Solicitation period is in effect from August 7-October 7, 2020. FRIP funding is restricted to existing and new retail food facilities with refrigeration systems that contain over fifty pounds of refrigerant. Of the million dollars available, $600,000 is allocated for Tier I refrigerant technologies i.e. ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) (GWP<10) and $400,000 for Tier II conventional hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) technologies. Existing facilities will receive preference for funding and may be eligible for larger incentive amounts since they face higher costs in transitioning to alternative technologies compared to new facilities. Facilities located in low-income or disadvantaged communities will receive preference and in some cases, will be eligible to receive higher amounts of funding, as will independent facilities.

Applicants to the FRIP are limited to existing or new retail food facilities located in California with refrigeration systems that contain more than 50 pounds of refrigerant. The site of the proposed project must be a retail food facility that is categorized under the following North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes: 445110, 452910 or 452112.
Applicants are not restricted to any geographical area within California. Projects located in low-income or disadvantaged communities may be given preferential funding and may be eligible for larger funding amounts.
Matching Funding Requirement:
CARB will only pay for the incremental cost of a low-GWP refrigeration system compared to a conventional system or pay a portion of the project cost up to a maximum funding amount. Applicants must commit to provide the remainder of the funding for the total cost of the project.
