1 Richard Battersby, CAFM, CPFP Director, UC Davis Fleet Services East Bay Clean Cities Coalition GREEN VEHICLE FUNDING SOURCES

2 2 If you only write down one thing……..

3 3 Funding providers Locating opportunities Keeping up to date Funding Strategies 101

4 4 Clean air vehicles cost more Internal funding mechanisms (you pay for it) External funding sources (somebody else pays for it!) Funding Strategies 101

5 5 Grants Vouchers/Incentives Rebates/tax credits Leasing? Funding Strategies 101

6 6 Competitive- Multiple entities vying for a limited amount of funding (e.g. Clean Cities Petroleum Reduction) Formulaic- No competition; distributed based upon established percentages (population, etc.) (e.g. Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant EECBG) Categorical- For specific projects, may require match Block- Formulaic grants, as provided to states for further award Earmark- Awarded through legislation GRANT TYPES

7 7 THE FUNDING PYRAMID

8 8 THE INVERTED FUNDING PYRAMID Federal State Local $$$ Threshold Effort Paperwork

9 9 FUNDING SOURCES

10 10 Department of Energy (DOE) –EERE, VTP, SEP, Clean Cities Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) –National and Regional, NCDC and DERA clean diesel Department of Transportation (DOT) –FTA, FHWA, TCSP, FAA (VALE), etc. Department of Agriculture (USDA) –REAP, Flex Fuel dispensers, biofuel production FEDERAL

11 11 FEDERAL GRANT SOURCES (test) DOE DOTEPA USDA IRS

12 12 For your state energy office, look here: Alternative Fuels Data Center There may be multiple state level funding entities Example: CA Energy Commission and Air Resources Board STATE

15 15 Air/Pollution Control Districts Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality (CMAQ) Funds Local Clean Cities Coalition Transit/Transportation Authorities Utilities Cy pres, non-profits, and corporate philanthropy Carbon/pollution offsets and credits (?) LOCAL

16 16 MPO LOCATOR

17 17 LOCAL CLEAN CITIES COALITIONS

18 18 Cy pres legal settlement funds (From petroleum spills, emissions, anti-trust, environmental damage, etc.) Philanthropy (endowment based) (example: Wells Fargo Environmental Grant Program, Turner Foundation, etc.) https://www.wellsfargo.com/about/csr/ea/environmental-giving Public Charities (raise funds each year) (example: The Rose Foundation, Northern California) Carbon/pollution offsets (?) (example: TerraPass, Carbonfund.org, etc.) MISCELLANEOUS/NON-TRADITIONAL

19 19 Cy pres legal settlement funds Meaning “As near as possible” Sources: legal settlements or trusts Funding limited to a specific issue Project criteria may be less specific No routine notification process Examples: –Class action lawsuits remaining balances –Reformulated Gasoline Settlement Fund MISCELLANEOUS/NON-TRADITIONAL

20 20 Carbon/pollution offsets Entities pay to offset carbon or pollution Payments then used to fund green projects Funding typically limited to specific issues Projects not directly fleet related (yet….) –TerraPass –Carbonfund.orghttp://www.carbonfund.org/ MISCELLANEOUS/NON-TRADITIONAL

43 43 STRATEGIES

44 44 Identify needed funding, equipment, vehicles Draft equipment specifications Obtain cost estimates Calculate and quantify emission reductions Consult previous successful grantees Obtain DUNS Number (http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform) Register with SAM (https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM) Clean Cities (!) START NOW!!! PREPARE

45 45 Attend grant workshops and meetings Make yourself known to funding provider Review previous successful proposals Review previous funding solicitations Identify solicitation areas that match your needs Tailor your proposal to match solicitation Clean Cities (!) RESEARCH FUNDING PROVIDER
