The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has allocated $273 million of Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-23 funding to the Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive (CORE) Project, furthering the shift to zero-emission technology in diverse markets, industries, and applications using zero-emission off-road equipment. This year, CARB will continue to build on key efforts to ensure the project operates effectively at this proposed funding level. Staff will continue to engage with stakeholders through a public work group process to update implementation of the program in the following areas:
- Equity and small business considerations
- Funding categories
- Program eligibility metrics
- Zero-emission equipment refueling support
On February 9, 2023, CARB will hold a public workgroup to discuss CORE implementation. Topics will include an overview of the CORE Project, FY 2021-22 voucher funding outcomes, and FY 2022-23 Implementation and projected timeline.
