The Voucher Incentive Program (VIP) for on-road heavy-duty diesel vehicles is available now!
Over $15 Million in funds are available statewide to replace 1993 and older high-polluting trucks with 2007 and newer cleaner trucks. This program is available for small fleets and owner-operators based in California for the previous two years.
Air districts can direct interested participants to http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/moyer/voucher/voucher.htm for program information and a list of current participating dealerships. Also, the Providing Loan Assistance for California Equipment (PLACE) Program for on-road vehicles is also available. Small fleets can apply for both incentive funds through VIP and for financing through PLACE. For a list of participating CalCAP lenders providing loans under the PLACE Program, go to:http://www.arb.ca.gov/ba/loan/loan.htm.
Finally, ARB has a hotline available to help truck owners with questions regarding regulations and funding opportunities. The phone number for the hotline is 1-866-6DIESEL.
