Engine Retrofit

Reduce emissions from on-road diesel trucks (GVWR greater than 14,000 lbs.) by installing a California Air Resources Board-verified retrofit device. Funds ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 are available for retrofits that provide early or extra emission reductions to the regulations.

Funding is available for the following retrofit projects:

  • Trucks with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 14,000 pounds or more and an engine model year of 2006 or older.
  • Trucks that do not have an ARB Truck and Bus Regulatory compliance deadline before January 1, 2018.

Truck Replacement

Replace on-road diesel trucks (GVWR greater than 14,000 lbs.) with a new or used truck that has an ARB-certified engine. Funds ranging from $5,000 to $45,000 are available for truck replacement projects. The replacement truck must be a new or used 2007 or newer model-year engine certified to meet the 2007 or cleaner emission standards. Funding is available for the following truck replacement projects:

Replacement projects:

Replace existing trucks with a GVWR between 14,001 and 26,000 lbs. that have an engine model year of:

  • 1998 to 2006, and are using the ARB engine model-year compliance schedule with no Truck and Bus Regulatory compliance deadline before January 1, 2018.
  • 1997 or older, and are using one of the alternative ARB flexibility compliance options with no current January 1, 2016, retrofit requirements.

Replace existing trucks with a GVWR of 26,001 lbs. or greater that have an engine model year of 2006 or older, if following one of the alternative ARB flexibility compliance options with no current January 1, 2016, retrofit requirements or 2010 emission standard compliance requirements before 2020.

Note: Applicants applying for VIP funding must document proper ARB fleet compliance. Questions about the ARB regulation or compliance must be directed to CARB staff at 1-866-6DIESEL (866-634-3735) or . BAAQMD staff does not have access to TRUCRS records or the online TRUCRS reporting system.

Basic Eligibility

The following are generally eligible for VIP grant; however you must be compliant the Statewide Truck and Bus Regulation (see below) to apply for funding:

  • Owners and operators of fleets of 10 or fewer vehicles
  • Trucks with a GVWR greater than 14,000 pounds
  • Trucks that are currently operational and registered in California
  • Equipment operating in California at least 75% of the time

Rules and Regulations

Funding cannot be used for upgrades or equipment purchases that are already required by an existing regulation, local ordinance, or contract. However, funding may be available for projects that comply at least one to three years in advance. Verify eligibility by identifying the regulations your truck is subject to.

ARB adopted the Statewide Truck and Bus Regulation in December 2008. The purpose of the regulation is to reduce emissions of diesel particulate matter, oxides of nitrogen, and other criteria pollutants from in-use on-road diesel-fuel vehicles. This rule impacts the eligibility of all on-road, heavy-duty diesel-fueled and alternative diesel-fueled vehicles operated in California with a GVWR greater than 14,000 pounds.
