HVIP FY21-22 Implementation Work Group Set for January 13
January 5, 2022
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a Webinar/Teleconference work group meeting on Thursday, January 13, about the implementation of Fiscal Year (FY) 2021-22 policy for the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) from the Board-approved FY 2021-22 Funding Plan for Clean Transportation Incentives.
The Funding Plan approved by CARB on November 19, 2021 allocated $569.5 million to HVIP and made several changes to project criteria. The policy modifications approved by the Board include the creation of set asides for public transit buses, public school buses, and drayage trucks, revisions to the existing voucher request caps policy and disadvantaged community voucher enhancement, and the establishment of a new pilot within HVIP to provide incentives geared towards small trucking fleets and independent owner operators. Additionally, the Board approved new requirements that will come into effect in January 1, 2023 including the fleet size limits, and a requirement for Zero-emission Powertrain Certification for HVIP vehicle eligibility.
The meeting agenda is available.
The work group meeting will be held via Zoom webinar at the following date and time:
Date: January 13, 2022
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (PT)

CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation Program, which includes HVIP, is designed to accelerate the transition to low carbon freight and passenger transportation with a priority on providing health and economic benefits to California’s most disadvantaged communities. These investments support the State’s climate change strategy pillars of a 50 percent reduction in petroleum use in vehicles by 2030 and reducing short-lived climate pollutants and the Governor’s goal to deploy 5 million ZEVs by 2030. These investments also reduce ozone precursor emissions and toxic diesel particulate emissions, supporting the State’s goals in these areas.
