Clean Mobility Options (CMO) is statewide public program that empowers under-resourced communities across California to better understand and overcome mobility obstacles with vouchers that fund community needs assessments and clean, shared, zero-emission transportation projects.
Provides comprehensive technical assistance to help applicants through a streamlined application process, CMO administrators work to make this critical funding more easily accessible to eligible applicants.
Clean Mobility Options is funded by California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment—particularly in underserved communities, and California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program, which is investing more than $1 billion to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission transportation infrastructure and support in-state manufacturing and workforce training and development.
