How often do CVRP program requirements change?

CVRP’s Terms and Conditions and Implementation Manual are updated every six months to accommodate operational process changes. Both the Terms and Conditions and Implementation Manual in place at the time of application will determine an applicant’s eligibility for the program. Changes to these governing documents may impact the applicant’s eligibility for the program.

The next regular updates are scheduled as follows*:

  • January 2022

*Note that there may be instances where no update is necessary.


CVRP also reserves the right to update the Implementation Manual and the Terms and Conditions outside of the scheduled updates. The timing of these updates will be communicated here as early as possible. 

 

Summary of April 23, 2021 Updates: 

  • Waitlist in effect
    • As of April 23, 2021, limited funding is only available for Rebate Now applicants.   All other applications will be placed on a rebate waitlist.   Qualified applicants on the rebate waitlist may receive a rebate if the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) receives funding from the State of California.​​​​​​ 
      • Applicants on the CVRP rebate waitlist understand and agree that an application placed on a waitlist may be subject to new Terms and Conditions and new CVRP Implementation Manual requirements should funding become available.   As a result, there is no guarantee that you will be eligible for a rebate.
