Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP)

Currently, the HVIP Waitlist now exceeds the funding available in Fiscal Year 19-20. New voucher requests are on hold until further notice. Check the CARB press release for more information.

The California Air Resources Board has made several policy changes that went into effect at midnight October 25, 2019.

Get up to $315,000 to purchase low-carbon clean trucks and buses!

HVIP provides point-of-sale price reductions for zero-emission and hybrid trucks and buses, ePTO systems and low NOX natural gas engines.

There’s no waiting for a rebate check, and no waiting to file a tax credit. Additional funding available to fleets located in or serving a disadvantaged community.


  •    Vouchers are available to public and private fleets (small or large)
       that operate in California.
  •    Fleets must choose an eligible vehicle and apply for a voucher
       through HVIP's vendor network available at www.californiahvip.org.
  •    Each vehicle that receives an incentive must stay in California for
       at least three years.
