The California Air Resources Board (CARB) announced it has set aside approximately $117 million for the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project and the Increased Incentives for Public Fleets in Disadvantaged Communities Pilot project.

The CVRP and Public Fleet Pilot Project were approved by CARB as part of the fiscal-year 2014-15 funding plan. The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project provides rebates for California purchasers and lessees of up to $5,000 for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), up to $2,500 for battery electric vehicles (BEVs), up to $1,500 for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and up to $900 for neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) and zero-emission motorcycles (ZEMs) on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, the Public Fleet Pilot Project provides increased incentives for public fleets located in or serving disadvantaged communities. Rebates offered to public fleets located in or serving disadvantaged communities are up to $15,000 for FCEVs, $10,000 for BEVs, and $5,250 for PHEVs, and up to $900 for NEVs and ZEMs.

CARB is seeking an administrator to implement the project. This solicitation is open to individuals, federal, state, or local government entities or agencies, and organizations or companies with expertise implementing a grant program and general knowledge of ARB’s clean vehicle programs. Applications are due by 5 pm on August 13.
