Enhanced Fleet Modernization Program - Car Scrap

This page last reviewed May 15, 2014

The Enhanced Fleet Modernization Program (EFMP) was approved by the AB118 legislation to augment the State’s existing vehicle retirement program, referred to as the Consumer Assistance Program.  Approximately $30 million is available annually to fund the EFMP via a $1 increase in vehicle registration fees.  ARB developed the program in consultation with the Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR).

The program is available statewide and provides $1,000 per vehicle ($1,500 for low-income consumers) for vehicles that meet certain eligibility guidelines. For more information or a copy of the application, visit the CAP website or call BAR at (866) 272-9642.
