The San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (District) is currently accepting applications for the Voucher Incentive Program (VIP). The VIP provides a streamlined approach to reduce emissions for qualified on-road diesel trucks with Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 14,001 pounds or higher. Vouchers up to $45,000 are available to replace qualifying trucks with newer, lower-emission vehicles, or to install Verified Diesel Emission Control Strategies (VDECS or “retrofits”). These VIP projects must be completed by no later than December 31, 2015.
Dealerships are encouraged to submit applications online through the County’s online Citizen Access system – https://publicservices.sdcounty.ca.gov/citizenaccess/
Guidelines for the VIP program are available at http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/moyer/guidelines/2011gl/2011cmp_onroadvip_12_30_14.pdf
The program is restricted to fleets of three trucks or less, and is open to trucks with Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (GVWRs) of 14,001 pounds and higher. 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.
