The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District is now accepting applications for grant funding available through the Voucher Incentive Program (VIP). With the goal of reducing air pollutant emissions, VIP provides a streamlined approach to obtain grants to replace qualified on-road diesel trucks with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) greater than 14,000 pounds.
C&M Motors is a participating dealer in the program and will assist you through the complete process.
What are the Criteria?
The basic requirements are:
- 2004 to 2009 engine year (2005-2010 truck model year)
- 14,001 GVW or higher
- Proof of registration for the past two years
- Clean Title
- Insurance for the past two years
If these conditions are met, then you are pre-qualified for the program.
The program is restricted to fleets comprised of 10 or fewer, diesel-fueled trucks, with an emphasis on fleets of three or fewer, and is open to trucks with a GVWR greater than 14,000 pounds. Applications will be reviewed and approved on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the date of receipt by the District) until funds are exhausted, or until the solicitation period is closed on November 1, 2019.
This has been a very popular program in the past and the current version is proving to be the same. We encourage you to give us a call with any questions you might have about the details of the program and how we can help. The funds are limited, so don’t wait to start the process. We are excited about helping your business save money, while helping to improve the air quality in California.
