Webinar topics covered will include:
- Key eligibility criteria

The webinar will be presented by Vicki White, program supervisor, SCAQMD. White has over 14 years of experience at the Technology Advancement Office of the SCAQMD. She has knowledge of the Proposition 1B funding as well as its policies and guidelines.
On June 3, the SCAQMD released the newest round of Proposition 1B funding. The Proposition 1B Program is administered by a partnership between SCAQMD and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to quickly reduce air pollution from freight movement along California’s trade corridors. Projects must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation.
