HVIP’s First Wave of Funding Fully Subscribed

HVIP Voucher Summary with Key Dates and Information
June 8, 2021, Updated June 30, 2021

The Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) opened to new voucher requests on June 8 with $84 million available, half of the total funds for this year (wave 1). The entire $84 million available was requested within 3 hours of opening, representing more than 800 vehicle vouchers.

Additional funds (wave 2), will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10 a.m. Pacific on Tuesday, August 10. A purchase order or other sales agreement that was eligible at the time of the initial opening will remain eligible throughout the program year and the pause does not affect this eligibility.

It is important to emphasize that Class 8 trucks performing drayage operations as well as any vehicles purchased by a public government entity are exempt from the pause and dealers can continue to request these vouchers.

Contingency List
The Voucher Processing Center’s evaluation of voucher requests submitted this month is ongoing, including ensuring consistency with the rules of the HVIP Implementation Manual. Also, the California Air Resources Board is evaluating requests by some manufacturers to exceed the limit of 100 cumulative unredeemed vouchers. More information is in the FAQs at

After the evaluation of vouchers submitted earlier this month is complete and $84 million in vouchers have been funded, remaining voucher requests for non-drayage private-entity purchasers submitted after initial funding was completely requested on June 8 will remain on a contingency list until July 30, at which point any unfunded requests for non-drayage private-entity purchasers will be deleted. The contingency list will be used to fill in for any canceled vouchers. Requests for public-entity purchasers and drayage are not affected. For questions about the status of specific voucher requests, please contact the Voucher Processing Center at [email protected]. Dealers should expect voucher-specific outreach from the Voucher Processing Center during review.

Approved Dealers
During the pause period, dealers requesting vouchers for public-entity purchasers and drayage can continue to create vouchers in the online Voucher Processing Center. Complete steps 1 through 4 and email [email protected] to create a Purchase Order line in documents section. Do not use the “Mark Status as Complete” button. When the request is ready to submit, Dealers requesting these vouchers must send an email to [email protected] with the Voucher Request Name, and the VPC team will submit it on their behalf.

When wave 2 opens on Aug. 10, all dealers will resume using the same VPC instructions followed on June 8.

Any draft vouchers in a dealer’s online Voucher Processing Center account for non-drayage purchases by private entities will be deleted on August 6. Dealers are welcome to create drafts to practice the process, however, no drafts will remain in the queue for vouchers when requests re-open on Aug. 10.

Dealer Training
Dealers who were not able to be approved before wave 1 will be contacted starting July 8, in the order that they expressed interest. If you would like to become an approved dealer and have not expressed interest, contact the Dealer trainer before July 16, and you will be trained in time to participate in wave 2. Dealers who have remaining questions should contact [email protected] to ensure their seamless participation.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
