Rule 2202 Air Quality Investment Program

Program Background

The AQMD is seeking proposals to be funded by monies from the Rule 2202 Air Quality Investment Program (AQIP).  Proposals will be accepted by the AQMD on an ongoing basis.  Contracts will be awarded on a quarterly basis.  Proposals should demonstrate that emission reductions/air quality improvements are real, surplus, quantifiable, and contain appropriate methodologies.  The objective of the program is to reduce equivalent emissions to those employers participating in the AQIP that would be achieving if they met their emission reduction target (ERT).

Rule 2202 allow employers to participate in the AQIP rather than implementing any other strategy contained in the rule, in order to meet their ERT.  An employer may elect to participate in the program by investing annually or triennially into an AQMD administered restricted fund.

The Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit cost-effective projects.  Some of the projects that could be considered to receive funding may include the procurement of low or zero emission vehicles; implementation of remote sensing; old vehicle scrapping; the creation or improvement of localized demand responsive, mobility enhancing services, such as shuttle services; and others.

All proposals received by 5 pm, according to the scheduled closing dates listed under the Schedule of Events, will be considered for that period.  Proposals received subsequent to the closing dates will be considered for the next quarter for disbursement.  This is an open process, proposals may be received at any time, and contracts are awarded every quarter.  Proposals are subject to AQMD Governing Board approval.  You may obtain a copy of the RFP by mail or on-line.  If you wish to receive additional information on the AQIP or receive technical assistance in completing the proposal, please contact:
