On-Road Heavy-Duty Voucher Incentive Program (VIP)


The On-Road Voucher Incentive Program takes the current criteria of the Carl Moyer Program Fleet Modernization program and streamlines the requirements for both participants and air districts. By streamlining the guideline requirements, the goal of the voucher program is to provide funding opportunities for fleets with 10 or fewer vehicles to quickly replace or retrofit their older heavy-duty diesel vehicles. Fleet owners that operate vehicles with 2002 or older model year diesel engines may be eligible for funding towards the purchase of a replacement vehicle that has a 2007 or newer engine. Fleet owners that operate vehicles with 1994-2006 model year diesel engines may be eligible for funding towards the purchase of an exhaust retrofit.



FUNDING IS AVAILABLE NOW!

Truck owners can be based anywhere in California and can get applications from one of the participating dealerships or retrofit installers to apply for a grant. Click below to locate a participating dealership or retrofit installer.
