ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE 2016 ANNUAL REPORT

Each year the Department of Finance (Finance) is required to submit an annual report to the Legislature on the status and outcomes of California Climate Investments.  In March, Finance released the 2016 Annual Report, which describes the status of funded programs and lists the projects funded.  It also provides estimates of the GHG reductions expected from project investments and provides key statistics on benefits to disadvantaged communities, demand for funding, and leveraging.

ARB has posted additional data to supplement the information found in the 2016 Annual Report.  This data includes information on investment locations and the total amount of funding provided to each individual region, county, legislative district, and Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).  The additional data can be found at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/auctionproceeds/annualreport.htm

BACKGROUND

Assembly Bill 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32; Nunez, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006) is a comprehensive, multi-year program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in California.  The Air Resources Board has adopted a Scoping Plan and, together with other State and local agencies, has developed and implemented numerous regulations and programs, including the Cap-and-Trade Program to reduce emissions to meet AB 32 goals.
