The California Air Resources Board (ARB or the Board) is soliciting a Grantee to implement and administer the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) and Low NOx Engine Incentives administered through HVIP for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016-17 with an option to renew for a new Grant Agreement for each of the following two years for FY 2017-18 and FY 2018-19. The current funding available is $13 million for FY 2016-17 HVIP and $23 million for low NOx engine incentives.

HVIP is intended to encourage and accelerate the deployment of new hybrid and zero emission trucks and buses in California. HVIP provides vouchers for California purchasers and lessees of up to $95,000 for zero-emission trucks and buses, and up to $30,000 for eligible hybrid trucks, and buses on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, HVIP provides increased incentives for fleets located in or serving disadvantaged communities. These fleets qualify for vouchers up to $110,000 for zero emission trucks and buses. At a minimum, 60 percent of HVIP funding will be used to fund vouchers of vehicles serving disadvantaged communities.
