The Clean Vehicle Assistance Program provides grants and affordable financing to help income-qualified Californians purchase a new or used hybrid or electric vehicle. Our goal is to make clean vehicles accessible and affordable to all who qualify.

The Clean Vehicle Assistance Program is funded by California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged communities.

How Do Grants Work?

Grants do not need to be repaid. To get a grant, you must receive an Approval Packet prior to purchasing the vehicle and comply with all program requirements throughout the program term.  The grant will be given to the dealer to lower the overall cost of the new or used clean vehicle.
