Welcome to the California Industry Assistance Website

The CA Industry Assistance Credit is part of the State of California's Cap-and-Trade Program, developed as a result of landmark legislation called the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32). The program aims to address climate change by limiting the total amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted by the largest sources.

You must determine which of the two categories your facility falls in based on your annual direct emissions and the California Air Resources Board's (CARB) GHG Mandatory Reporting Regulation (MRR). Depending upon the category that your facility falls in, the facility is either automatically eligible for the credit, or you must attest that the facility is eligible for the credit.

The CA Industry Assistance credit is provided at the facility level. Per the regulation, a facility is defined as a physical property or structure located on one or more contiguous properties, such as a campus, factory or company headquarters. If you have more than one facility, you must complete this process for each eligible facility separately.
