Alternative Fuel and Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Application


Americans with Disabilities Act

Please note that before work commences on your alt fuel project, you must obtain all required land use permits from agencies needed to install and operate the installation. The installation must comply with all applicable rules and regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act. A copy of the finalized building permit must be provided to APCD before the grant project is paid. 

For more information on the Americans with Disabilities Act and how it applies to your project, please refer to the page 535 Section 11B-228.3.1 in the Federal Resources and excerpts from the 2016 California Building Code related to New Accessibility Regulations for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. 


Hydrogen Fueling Station Infrastructure 

The San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (SLO County APCD) has streamlined and updated our $250,000 Request for Proposals (RFP) to incentivize station developers to install a hydrogen station in San Luis Obispo County, which has both Group 1 and Group 2 Priority Target Markets. A SLO County hydrogen station is a critically needed connector station between northern and southern California on the U.S. 101 corridor and between the Central Coast and U.S. Route 5. SLO County’s multiple features, including, a strong tourism draw, Cal Poly State University, and the region’s Central Coast travel corridor (Santa Barbara, Ventura, SLO, Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties) presents station location opportunities to serve as both a “destination” and a “connector.” The SLO County APCD and other SLO County stakeholders are identifying fleets and individuals willing to add hydrogen vehicles to support the siting of a hydrogen station in SLO County.

Community Air Protection Program (AB617)

The APCD Board has authorized additional grant funding in the amount of $614,063 from California Assembly Bill 617 - Community Air Grants Program. AB 617 seeks to ensure that all Californians benefit equitably from our State's air quality and climate efforts, especially those who live in the areas of California most severely impacted by air pollution. 

Eligible projects for this funding, which will focus on under-served areas in our county, will be administered using the Carl Moyer grant program guidelines and include, but are not limited to the replacement of diesel equipment, including heavy-duty on-road vehicles (transit, waste haulers, and heavy-duty trucks), agricultural tractors and irrigation engines, construction equipment and transit and school buses.
