Clean Cars 4 All

This page last reviewed June 13, 2019

The Clean Cars 4 All Program is a voluntary car scrap and replacement program established by Assembly Bill 630 (Cooper, Chapter 636, Statutes of 2017), codifying the existing Enhanced Fleet Modernization Program (EFMP) Plus-up Project initiated in 2015. The program focuses on providing incentives through California Climate Investments (CCI) to lower-income California drivers to scrap their older, high-polluting car and replace it with a zero- or near-zero emission replacement. The program's guiding legislation aims to focus the benefits of the program to low-income and disadvantaged communities and has a heavy emphasis on consumer protections, education of the new technologies, and coordination with other clean transportation programs. AB 630 requires CARB to adopt guidelines by January 1, 2019, establish measurable goals for replacement of light-duty vehicles, and then post this information on the performance of the Clean Cars 4 All Program annually.

A list of additional light-duty programs can be found on the Resources page.


The Office of Administrative Law (OAL) has approved CARB's proposed guidelines for Clean Cars 4 All rulemaking and amendments to the EFMP Guidelines. The rulemaking is effective June 7, 2019.
