HVIP Opens on October 28 to New Voucher Requests

The Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) will open to new voucher requests at 10 a.m. Pacific on Thursday, October 28, 2021, with its wave 3 of funding (approximately $62 million) on a first-come, first-served basis.

HVIP opened to new voucher requests on June 8 (wave 1) and August 10 (wave 2) with its FY 20-21 funding and those funding allocations have been fully requested.

Purchase Orders for Voucher Requests

A valid signed Purchase Order (or other binding Agreement, Contract, Buyer’s Order, or action/resolution by a government entity’s governing body) is required at the time a voucher request is made. Non-binding agreements are not sufficient to reserve a voucher. A purchase order or other sales agreement that was eligible at the time of the initial opening in June will remain eligible throughout the project year, including wave 3.

  • POs for private-entity purchasers can be no older than May 29, 2021
  • POs for public-entity purchasers can be no older than March 10, 2021
