Background

The Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP): HVIP is the cornerstone of CARB’s advanced technology heavy-duty incentives, providing funding since 2010 to support the long-term transition to ZEVs in the heavy-duty market, as well as supporting investments in other emerging technology to achieve substantial greenhouse gas reductions and help meet health-based ambient air quality standards. Voucher incentives complement other programs in CARB’s heavy-duty funding portfolio by providing a streamlined application process without requiring scrapping of an existing vehicle. HVIP achieves both immediate emission reductions and, as emphasized in Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-79-20, supports the transformation of California’s vehicle and equipment fleet to zero-emitting where feasible. 

The FY 2020-21 Funding Plan, approved by the Board on December 10, 2020, allocated $25 million of AQIP funds to HVIP and made several changes to project criteria. The policy modifications approved by the Board include lowering annual fleet voucher caps, introducing a rolling “soft” voucher cap for manufacturers, streamlined voucher tables and revised amounts, modified vehicle classification and eligibility criteria, and graduating conventional natural gas internal combustion engines.
