Clean Transportation Program
This Localized Health Impacts Report describes the potential health impacts to communities from projects seeking California Energy Commission (CEC) funding under Grant Solicitation GFO-21-605. This grant initiative seeks to expand in-state manufacturing of zero-emission vehicles and associated infrastructure, batteries, and other components. Under California Code of Regulations Title 13, Section 2343, this report is available for public comment for 30 days before the approval of projects at a publicly noticed business meeting.
CEC staff has proposed 12 projects for Clean Transportation Program grant funding awards under Solicitation GFO-21-605. Some of these projects have multiple locations. Based on project site information provided by the awardees, 6 of the 13 communities where these projects are located are considered high-risk communities. Community members near the proposed project sites may be at a higher risk of adverse health impacts from pollution. However, staff does not anticipate a net increase in the pollution burden for the communities where these projects are located.
