Companies that frequently transport goods to warehouses and other business centers in San Bernardino and Riverside counties will be eligible to apply for the funds through a competitive Request for Proposal process that opened on November 6. The funds can be used to make investments that transition their fleet to zero or near zero emission trucks and cargo-handling equipment, as well as infrastructure to support these vehicles.
The MSRC is turning 30! To celebrate three decades and hundreds of millions of dollars in investments in clean air projects, Clean Air Roadmap will feature 30 projects over the coming year to showcase how the MSRC has helped transform the South Coast’s transportation sector into a leader in cleaner technologies, infrastructure and mobility programs.
Meghan Sahli-Wells has served as a member or alternate member of the MSRC for the past two years representing the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). Throughout her tenure, Meghan has brought her significant passion for developing and implementing local sustainable transportation solutions in Southern California. Meghan shared that, “every time the MSRC funds a project, it’s not just a project and numbers (representing emissions reductions). These are investments benefitting some of our region’s most vulnerable communities and improving their quality of life.”
