Funding now available for small fleets to replace older, higher-polluting heavy-duty trucks with lower-emission models
The On-Road Heavy-Duty Vehicles Voucher Incentive Program (VIP) is a streamlined approach to reducing emissions by replacing old, high-polluting heavy-duty on-road trucks with newer, zero-emission vehicles. This program is limited to owners/operators with fleets of 10 or fewer trucks that have been operating at least 75% (mileage-based) in California during the previous 24 months. Small fleets that meet the program eligibility requirements can receive up to $410,000 per zero-emission replacement truck.
The goal of this program is to reduce emissions from heavy-duty trucks in small fleets by replacing Engine Model Years 2017 and older with new zero-emissions compliant models. Dealers will apply to South Coast AQMD for the vouchers on behalf of the applicant. If approved, the voucher amount will be deducted from the total purchase price of the truck by the dealer.
Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis and approved applicants will be notified within 20 days.
Replacement trucks must be purchased through a South Coast AQMD-approved VIP Participating Dealership. A current list of South Coast AQMD approved Dealerships and Dismantlers is available on our program webpage.
