Eligible Applicant

This is a competitive contract solicitation to support the California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) Sustainable Transportation and Communities Division. CARB encourages proposers to form multidisciplinary teams to fulfill contract requirements. Principal Investigators (PIs) must be affiliated with University of California (UC) and California State Universities (CSU); however, CARB welcomes applications that include subcontractors from outside of the UC/CSU systems.

This study seeks to answer several questions about whether, and to what extent, housing and transportation (H&T) costs and burdens experienced by California households—particularly priority population households that are disproportionately burdened by these costs—influence households’ home relocation decisions. For example, do California households that live in low-income communities and communities of color experience a higher combined housing plus transportation cost burden? What are the differences in H&T costs between low-, middle-, and high-income households and across different place types? What are the factors influencing these differences? How are these H&T cost burdens impacting where households choose to live?

Key Dates:

• July 13, 2022 – Pre-proposals must be submitted by email to by 5 p.m.

• August 3, 2022 – Winning applicants will be notified.

• September 9, 2022 – Full proposals due to CARB staff for review by 5 p.m.
