Workgroup Meeting on Light-Duty Vehicle Purchase Incentive Programs

Meeting Will Be Held on September 1, 2022,
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (PT)

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a public workgroup to discuss CARB’s Light-Duty Vehicle Purchase Incentive Programs, which include the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP), Clean Cars 4 All (CC4A), and Financing Assistance. Topics to be covered include: the Assembly Bill (AB) 630 (Cooper, Chapter 636, Statutes of 2017) Report, also known as the AB 630 Report, for CC4A; analysis of incentive amounts across all three programs and potential changes; and a discussion of the needs-based model for implementation of equity-focused vehicle purchase incentive programs.

Workgroup durations vary and the meeting may end earlier than the anticipated time. However, in the event the agenda is not completed, a subsequent meeting will be scheduled.


California Climate Investments Low Carbon Transportation Funding:  The Low Carbon Transportation Program is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment, particularly in disadvantaged communities. CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation Program is designed to accelerate the transition to low carbon freight and passenger transportation with a priority on providing health and economic benefits to California’s most disadvantaged communities. These investments support the State’s goals of a 50 percent reduction in petroleum use in vehicles by 2030 and reducing short-lived climate pollutants, as well as the goal to deploy 5 million zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) by 2030. Additionally, these incentives provide important early steps to transform the transportation sector, supporting Governor Newsom’s recent Executive Order N-79-20 calling on the State to accelerate the transformation to a zero-emission transportation fleet. Lastly, these investments reduce ozone precursor emissions and toxic diesel particulate emissions, supporting the State’s goals in these areas.

More Information

CARB’s light-duty vehicle investments are aimed at supporting the long-term transformation of California’s fleet and ensuring that this transformation occurs in an equitable manner. These investments include the light-duty vehicle purchase incentive programs CVRP, CC4A, and Financing Assistance. CVRP supports increasing the number of ZEVs on California’s roadways to meet deployment goals and achieve large scale transformation of the fleet while also providing support to increase ZEV adoption in low-income communities. CC4A and Financing Assistance are designed to increase access to cleaner vehicles in disadvantaged communities and lower-income households as prescribed by Senate Bill (SB) 1275 (De León, Chapter 530, Statutes of 2014) and supported by SB 350 (de León, Chapter 547, Statutes of 2015), as well as provide support to the secondary ZEV market. Each of these vehicle purchase incentives programs provide opportunities for all California residents to participate in vehicle purchase incentive programs as well as increase consumer awareness of clean vehicles in disadvantaged communities.

AB 630 Report: CC4A (also known as the EFMP Plus-up Pilot Project) was established by AB 630 and provides incentives for lower-income consumers living in and near disadvantaged communities who scrap their old vehicles and purchase new or used hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or zero-emission replacement vehicles.

AB 630 tasked CARB to evaluate program performance, to set annual and long‑term goals, and to illustrate the direction of CC4A. These performance goals and program performance metrics are published in the AB 630 report, also known as the Annual Goal Setting Report. CARB is seeking public input regarding the metrics used in the AB 630 report. Public input would be essential in providing continued support for participants and to refine targeted outreach to priority communities. In addition to determining metrics, CARB has improved survey methodology to increase participant feedback and to better capture comments and suggestions that can be used to better improve the adaptability of CC4A. These collaborative steps towards project goals will serve as a basis for shaping and designing a formula and guiding principles used for future funding allocations.
