Submit a Voucher Request

To submit a voucher request, vehicle purchasers must follow the steps below:

  1. Select an eligible vehicle technology that fits your business needs from the list above.
  2. Contact an HVIP-Approved Vendor to submit a voucher request for an eligible vehicle technology.
  3. Sign the Purchaser Terms & Conditions form.
  4. The vendor or dealer will submit the voucher request to the Voucher Processing Center (VPC).
  5. The vehicle purchaser will receive the HVIP incentive at the point of sale.

Technology Types

HVIP offers incentives for eligible zero-emission trucks and buses; vehicles using engines that meet the optional low-NOx engine standard in California; and vehicles using eligible ePTO technologies.

ePTO (electric Power Take-Off) – Refers to a device that takes power from an on-vehicle source (like a battery) and produces no emissions and which is used to power an aerial boom. Work vehicles with ePTO are deemed HVIP-eligible by CARB based on a demonstration that the vehicle engine does not idle to recharge the battery or to power the truck mounted hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric work equipment utilized for performing stationary work in a typical work day.

Zero-Emission –  Refers to any vehicle that produces no emissions when stationary or operating. Hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric-powered vehicle technologies have been proven to emit zero emissions when powering medium and heavy-duty vehicles and therefore are eligible for HVIP. Other technologies which emit zero-emissions when in operation may be considered for HVIP eligibility on a case-by-case basis.

Low-NOx Engine – Refers to any approved engine or vehicle that is powered by an engine certified to a 0.02 g/bhp-hr NOx standard, which is 90 percent below the current NOx standard. As of Oct. 25, 2019 vehicles equipped with 8.9L Low-NOx engines are no longer eligible for HVIP funding. 11.9 L Low-NOx engines remain eligible for HVIP funding.
