HVIP Funding Incentives Opening Soon

HVIP Funding Incentives for Zero-Emission or Near-Zero Emission Vehicles Opening Soon

 California’s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) will be opening soon for new voucher requests.  The HVIP program makes transitioning to zero-emission or near-zero emission technologies more affordable by offering vouchers used for point-of-purchase price reductions with participating dealers.  The California Air Resource Board (CARB) began this program in 2009 and most recently allocated $25 million to continue HVIP this year.

The Program is administered by CALSTART, a national clean transportation nonprofit consortium, on behalf of CARB.  Funding for FY 20/21 will provide base voucher amounts ranging from $20,000 to $150,000, depending on the vehicle you purchase. Individual owner-operators, small businesses, corporate leaders, school districts, and municipal fleets are all eligible. Eligible vehicles include heavy and medium-duty coach buses, refuse trucks, school buses and shuttles, heavy-duty on-road tractors, straight trucks, step vans, and ePTO vehicles.

HVIP will reopen in spring 2021 following the release of the FY 20/21 Implementation Manual. If you are interested in the program please use the links below to learn more about this opportunity and check back on the Funding Status Page.
