Representing Small, Rural, & Specialized Transportation Providers Statewide
STEP Funding Now Available
Agencies are invited to apply for funding through the Sustainable Transportation Equity Project (STEP). CARB has up to $22 million available to fund planning, clean transportation, and supporting projects for multiple grantees across the State.
STEP is a new pilot that takes a community-based approach to overcoming barriers to clean transportation. STEP’s overarching purpose is to increase transportation equity in disadvantaged and low-income communities throughout California via two types of grants: Planning and Capacity Building Grants and Implementation Grants. STEP aims to address community residents’ transportation needs, increase residents’ access to key destinations (e.g., schools, grocery stores, workplaces, community centers, medical facilities), and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This solicitation is open to community-based organizations, federally recognized tribes, and local governments interested in implementing community-driven clean transportation projects. Applications submitted via email, in person, or via a delivery service provider (U.S. Postal Service, UPS, FedEx, etc.) must be delivered to CARB no later than 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Time), Monday, August 31, 2020.
