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.
Who is Eligible?
Our grant program is for California residents who meet the income threshold. You can check your eligibility now.
Grants are for new or used clean vehicles. You can get a grant for a hybrid vehicle, a plug-in hybrid, or an electric vehicle. Battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids can also include a free charging unit with installation support, up to a $2,000 value.
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.
To get a clean vehicle grant with fair financing there are 3 simple steps
1. Submit an application and receive your Approval Packet.
2. Research and select the right vehicle and the best financial option for you.
3. Bring your Approval Packet to one of our Network Dealerships to purchase your vehicle.
