SOMAH Incentive Budget Report


Table 1: Project Capacity and Budget summarizes the committed and remaining budget for the SOMAH program authorized by AB 693. Track A provides incentives for projects that require Upfront Technical Assistance. Track B provides incentives for projects that do not require technical assistance and have identified an eligible contractor for the project. Projects under Track A will have their incentive funds earmarked for a three-month period prior to a Reservation Request.

Table 2: Cumulative Program Budget summarizes the program dollars collected to data, by fiscal year, and identifies application totals and available program funds. Any unused funds in one program year will roll over to become available in the next program year.

SOMAH data is current as of December 1, 2021.
