AB 617 Program & Truck Incentives Workshop Update

The AB 617 Program continues to work toward the improvement of air quality and public health in environmental justice communities. The AB 617 Program is a community-based program where local stakeholder members of Community Steering Committees (CSCs) help develop and implement Community Emission Reduction Plans (CERPs) and Community Air Monitoring Plans (CAMPs). Currently, six communities have been designated as AB 617 Communities in the South Coast AQMD: 

1. Eastern Coachella Valley; 
2. East Los Angeles, Boyle Heights, West Commerce; 
3. San Bernardino, Muscoy; 
4. Wilmington, Carson West Long Beach; 
5. South Los Angeles; and, 
6. Southeast Los Angeles.

Except for South Los Angeles, all communities in the program are in the implementation phase of the program and meet quarterly. The South Los Angeles Community is currently developing their CAMP and CERP, which are expected to be presented at the May 20th Stationary Source Committee and then considered for adoption by the South Coast AQMD Governing Board on June 3rd. 

South Coast AQMD hosted a series of three Truck Incentives Workshops on December 1, 2021, January 26, 2022, and March 30, 2022. These virtual workshops provided opportunities for community stakeholders to offer input and guide the development of a project plan for heavy-duty truck incentive funds within AB 617 communities. The project plan is currently under development for submission to the California Air Resources Board.
