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

Dealers who are interested in participating in wave 3 must contact us by October 18th in order to be trained and approved on time to participate in wave 3. All dealer training requirements must be completed by October 25th in order to get access to the online Voucher Processing Center in advance of the release of the third wave of funds this fall.
