Policy Clarification: Small Fleet Voucher Amounts for School Buses

February 6, 2024

The base voucher amount is doubled for small public and private fleets submitting new HVIP voucher requests on or after 11/17/23 in Standard HVIP, the Drayage Truck Set-Aside, or the Public Transit Set-Aside, for any HVIP-eligible vehicles. However, a clarification is necessary to emphasize that effective 2/1/24, the doubling of the base voucher amount is not able to be combined with the +65% voucher enhancement for School Buses. This means that while small school bus fleets will receive the double base voucher amount, they will not also receive the additional +65%. This clarification is not retroactive, and does not affect any vouchers requested before 2/1/24. This also does not affect the Public School Bus Set Aside. Voucher amounts for the Public School Bus Set Aside are outlined in Appendix G of the FY 22-23 Implementation Manual and remain unchanged.
