Community Clean Freight Truck Solicitation


Status: Closed

The Community Clean Freight Truck Solicitation is one of the priorities selected through the Community Air Protection Program to fund clean truck applications to replace existing diesel freight trucks with new natural gas, electric, or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles operating in the Sacramento Region. This solicitation is similar to the Proposition 1B: Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program, but several key evaluation criteria have been modified to meet community needs. These new vehicles will benefit our communities by reducing harmful emissions. We will be accepting applications during the application period listed above.  After the application period has ended, the applications will be ranked and selected applicants will be contacted to continue the funding process.  The program requirements, application ranking process, program timeline, and application checklist are described below.
