CARB’s goal under this Solicitation is to support a wide array of zero-emission off-road equipment and vessel projects as well as Green Zones, which has a very broad scope and is focused on supporting broad and creative roads to zero-emission adoption at the municipal level.


The California Air Resources Board (CARB or the Board) is soliciting for several Grantees to implement and administer the projects eligible for Advanced Technology Demonstration and Pilot Project program (referred to as Program or ATDPP) under the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021-22 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives (FY 2021-22 Funding Plan) and the FY 2022-23 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives (FY 2022-23 Funding Plan).

The Program is intended to strategically accelerate the advancement of innovative and economically viable technologies into the commercial marketplace while also supporting the State’s equity and emission reduction goals. The Program helps to achieve these goals by funding projects that help guide development by encouraging the economic and environmental benefits of the projects. Historically, 99 percent of demonstration and pilot project funds have gone to projects located in priority populations or to projects that benefit priority populations. Projects funded under this Solicitation can support both pre-commercial technologies that are not yet offered for sale in the marketplace as well those commercial technologies that have already been deployed into the marketplace.
