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*:
*Note that there may be instances where no update is necessary.
†July updates are delayed pending several CVRP program adjustments.
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 Latest Updates
March 18, 2019: Updated IRS tax forms were released for use starting with the 2018 tax year. As a result, CVRP updated the Implementation Manual to reflect these changes. This update includes the specific line numbers that the Administrator will review beginning with applications submitted on or after April 16th, 2019 on the updated IRS Form 1040, and the new IRS Form 1040: Schedule 1.
January 31, 2019: Participants who receive a vehicle grant buy-down through the Clean Vehicle Assistance Program (CVAP), which provides grants and financing assistance to low-income Californians for the purchase of a new or used hybrid or electric vehicle, are not eligible to participate in CVRP. However, CVAP participants who only receive the low-interest financing, not the vehicle grant, may participate in CVRP if they have purchased a new vehicle.
