The California Air Resources Board (CARB), in partnership with CALSTART, launched the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) to accelerate the adoption of cleaner, more-efficient trucks and buses. HVIP works directly with dealers to apply the voucher incentive at the time of purchase. Any commercial vehicle user in California, including municipal fleets, smalls businesses, school districts and more can apply.

The Volkswagen (VW) Environmental Mitigation Trust (Trust) provides about $423 million for California to mitigate the excess nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions caused by VW’s use of illegal emissions testing defeat devices in certain VW diesel vehicles. The Trust provides funding opportunities for specified eligible actions that are focused mostly on “scrap and replace” projects for many sectors, including Transit and shuttle buses.
