The amount remains at the reduced $300k despite taking a full year off? What's happening to the 2020/21 money that was never spent?

@Matt – thanks for your question. Total amount of funding available for this third year of the Community Air Grants is $10 million, with tentative additional funds should they become available. However, no other funding has been allocated, so far, to this program.
Cristina Echeverria, CARB, (she/her/ella)
01:17:30
If anyone wants to learn more about the funding process and how money travels from Cap and Trade to program funding: http://www.caclimateinvestments.ca.gov/about-cci

That was my questions
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)

there seems to be a missing year

Thank you

If folks would like to get more involved in the flow of money, a good way to get involved is to provide input on the Investment plan, which identified priority investments. Investment recommendations identified in the Investment Plan do not guarantee funding but rather provide guidance to the Legislature on potential funding opportunities.The next Investment Plan is currently under development and workshops will be occurring later this summer/early Fall: https://ww2.arb.ca.gov/resources/documents/california-climate-investments-investment-plan
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)
01:33:08
Thanks Christal, I think we have an excellent opportunity to support CARB by advocating for a funding increase that acknowledges the lost year.
Christal Love-Lazard
01:33:35
Thanks Matt!

Why not have CARB just PROVIDE technical assistance for each grantee that needs it? like the SGC's TCC program for sustainable communities affordable housing( AHSC). for future reference.
Alice Sung
01:38:01
not only TA for the grant application but also for the implementation of the grant itself as appropriate
Alice Sung
01:41:06
No not for academic 'researchers' please....
Adrian Rehn, Valley Vision
01:41:17
Would like "formal" 617 communities to be co-convened with Air Grant communities to build shared understanding and to exchange best practices.
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)
01:41:40
+++ Adrian's comments
Alice Sung

Alice Sung
01:43:16
public forum for TA on a competitive grant may not be helpful.... TCC model is better.
Sean Anderson
01:43:25
Great idea Adrian
Adrian Rehn, Valley Vision
01:44:09
There were Summits in 2018 and 2019 I believe, but invites were scattered and not all Air Grantees were informed
Alice Sung
01:44:11
yes, each team can get their own TA.
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)
01:44:38
There will be an AB617 conference planned for late September
Adrian Rehn, Valley Vision
01:45:03
Can you share info? Was not aware. 2019 CAG grantee.
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)
01:45:16
Yes UC should have sent that out already
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)
01:45:24
just waiting on keynote confirmation
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)
01:45:35
email my please Adrian?
Alice Sung
01:45:38
Did you answer the other questions that we had in the chat early on? did I miss it? please repeat re indoor air quality qualifying in the scope?
Matt Holmes (he/him/his)
01:45:42
I'll dig up the details
Adrian Rehn, Valley Vision
01:45:50
Will do, thx
Alice Sung
01:47:14
yes

Very specific question: I’m looking at the Budget worksheet from the CARB RFP website. It says to look at the “Budget Items” and “Budget Template” tabs. There doesn’t seem to be a “Budget Items” tab. Am I missing something?
Alice Sung
01:47:49
as in getting the gas out of schools and day cares
Alice Sung
01:48:06
its all one air....
Liz Beall
01:48:48
Thank you!
Liz Beall
01:49:02
Will do!
Alice Sung
01:49:05
so that was a NO? to my questions re IAQ
Alice Sung
01:50:47
Can a grant project deal with building decarbonization , which improves air quality indoors , and indirectly, air quality overall?
Sean Anderson
01:51:01
Thanks Matt: will it be on Zoom?
Alice Sung
01:52:46
ok thanks
Liz Beall
01:53:18
Thank you, all!
Leah Asay, CARB
01:53:20
Hello Liz, in order to select a "Budget Item" you will need to select a "Budget Category". Each category will generate different budget items. The tab was removed when the Budget template was updated and instructions need to be edited.
Liz Beall
01:53:39
Thank you Leah!
