Purpose

To support the adoption and deployment of zero-emission Class 6 or Class 7 heavy-duty vehicles.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Grants and rebates are provided to cover up to 100% of costs for 1) replacing non-zero-emission vehicles with zero-emission vehicles; 2) purchasing, installing, operating, and maintaining required infrastructure; 3) workforce development and training; and 4) planning and technical activities.

Decarbonization Considerations

Consider replacing current transit buses, garbage trucks, and other utility vehicles with zero-emission vehicles.

Equity Considerations

Consider prioritizing projects in nonattainment areas or communities where residents are historically disproportionally impacted by air pollution. For workforce development and training activities, consider partnering with community-based organizations and adopting strategies that help develop and maintain the local workforce. Find more information about nonattainment areas here: https://www.epa.gov/green-book
