Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost:
Subvention funding of $90,160 is included in the FY 2012-13 AQMD budget. No Change in Net County Cost.

Background:
The Budget Act of 2012 continues the $10,111,000 in appropriation for subvention to local air pollution control districts. The Health and Safety Code requires $500,000 of the amount appropriated by the Budget Act be reserved for subvention to rural air pollution control districts to attain minimum subvention levels if certain criteria are met.

Reason for Recommendation:
This request implements the Board's revenue requirement in the AQMD approved FY 2012-13 budget by authorizing the submittal of the application for continued Subvention funding. These funds are appropriated in the State of California Budget Act of 2012 and are distributed to local air districts in accordance with formulas established by the Health and Safety Code. This year's annual fund award process mirrors that used in previous fiscal years, FY 2011-12 and FY 2010-11.

The Subvention funding application Form (Attachment A), designed to identify the total budget for AQMD's air pollution control program, including a detailed breakdown by funding source, will be completed by the AQMD and submitted to the California Air Resources Board prior to November 15, 2012.
