HVIP Completes Successful Relaunch and Remains Open – Continue to Apply Today!
Funding summaries by category are now available on the Funding Page.
HVIP re-opened to voucher requests at 10:00 a.m. Pacific on March 30, 2022.
HVIP still remains open for all voucher requests, including standard HVIP funds, and the set-asides for transit and school buses. While funds specifically set aside for drayage trucks have been fully subscribed, requests for drayage and all class 8 tractors will continue to be accepted and funded out of standard HVIP funds as described below.
In total, nearly $430 million was made available, and in the first 24 hours, a cumulative total of $272 million was requested across standard HVIP funds and the set-asides for drayage trucks, transit, and school buses. All requests are being funded based on timestamp without the need for a randomization process.
Dealers and purchasers have now been notified about funding being set aside for vouchers submitted during the first 24 hours. If you have voucher-specific questions, please contact [email protected].
Funding status confirmations will continue to be sent as more voucher requests come in; requests are first-come, first-served except for the Public School Bus Set-Aside for Small and Medium Air Districts.
Please note that the Public School Bus Set-Aside for Small and Medium Air Districts has a 90-day application window, the first day of which was March 30, with specific prioritization criteria during that timeline for disadvantaged communities. More details are at californiahvip.org/purchasers/#SchoolBus including upcoming training opportunities for dealers and purchasers.
An additional set-aside, the Innovative Small E-Fleets project, will open later this year with differing rules and structure than all other HVIP funding categories. Please see more details at californiahvip.org/purchasers and contact [email protected].
Funding updates will continue to be posted at californiahvip.org – including data about voucher requests.
Interested in Infrastructure Incentives?

If you are participating in the School Bus Set-Aside for Small and Medium Air Districts, EnergIIZE may be able to work with you to provide infrastructure funding and technical assistance.
