Heavy Duty Vehicles

Air District funding is available to help upgrade or replace heavy-duty trucks and transit buses with newer, lower-emission vehicles.

How to Apply

Visit the Apply for Funding web page to apply. There are multiple funding sources available for heavy-duty trucks and transit buses. After you apply, Air District staff will work with you to match your project with an appropriate funding source.

Eligible Project Types

  • Vehicle Replacement: Replace heavy-duty trucks, transit buses, solid waste vehicles, utility trucks, emergency vehicles and other vehicles in compliant fleets with the cleanest-emissions vehicle available, including zero-emission vehicles. Note that replacing with a diesel vehicle is no longer eligible for funding.
  • Fleet Expansion: Expand existing fleet with new zero-emission vehicles. There is limited funding for this project type. Please investigate HVIP funding prior to applying.
  • Infrastructure projects: Install new, convert, or expand existing battery-charging or hydrogen-fueling stations. Limited funding is also available for supporting infrastructure for CNG-powered vehicles.

Key Eligibility Criteria

  • Public and private entities are eligible (individuals are not.)
  • The vehicles to be replaced and the new vehicles must have a GVWR greater than 14,000 lbs.
  • Vehicles to be replaced and applicants must be in compliance with all Air District and CARB regulations.
  • Funding cannot be used for upgrades or equipment purchases that are already required by an existing regulation, local ordinance, or contract.
  • Applicants must submit an application, be awarded, and enter into a funding agreement with the Air District prior to starting their projects. Projects that have started (e.g., placing an order or deposit for a vehicle) prior to the funding agreement being signed by all parties will be disqualified.
  • Applicants applying for funding must document current fleet compliance. Questions about CARB regulations or compliance must be directed to CARB staff at 1-866-6DIESEL (866-634-3735) or 8666DIESEL@arb.ca.gov.

Complete information about project requirements and eligibility criteria are available in the documents located in the Resources section below. If you have a project that does not meet all the eligibility criteria, please contact us to discuss other potential opportunities.
