The Greenlining Institute is part of the Charge Ahead California campaign, a coalition of organizations supporting the implementation of the Zero Emissions Vehicle mandate in California, aiming to get 1.5 million electric vehicles on the road by 2025. Greenlining’s specific goal is to ensure that electric and clean transportation is equitable and accessible to all Californians. With this proposed grant, Greenlining would focus on building support for solutions for low income communities and communities of color, such as well-designed incentives to ensure access to electric vehicles, public transportation, and electric car share.
