Carl Moyer On-Road VIP Update
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has announced updates to the Carl Moyer Voucher Incentive Program (VIP). Funding through this program is directed exclusively to small fleets with 10 vehicles or less, where eligible applicants can receive grants to purchase cleaner replacement vehicles. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, and applicants are notified within 15 business days upon receipt of their application.
VIP has traditionally supported the transition of small fleets to the 2010 engine model year emission standard per the Truck and Bus Regulation. As the final implementation deadline approaches for the Truck and Bus Regulation, this will be the last year of Moyer, or VIP, eligibility for fleets to move to an engine meeting the 0.2 gram per brake-horsepower-hour (g/bhp-hr) oxides of nitrogen (NOx) standard. This year, eligible applicants can continue to receive up to $60,000 for replacements meeting the 0.2 g/bhp-hr NOx standard. In this year’s update, CARB is expanding VIP to allow additional funding for replacement vehicles meeting the 0.02 g/bh-hr NOx standard or cleaner, including zero emissions, up to $100,000 per vehicle. The inclusion of zero emission vehicles aligns with Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-79-20, which sets the goal of 100 percent of medium, and heavy-duty vehicles in the State be zero-emission by 2045 for all operations where feasible, and by 2035 for drayage trucks.
