What does the rebate waitlist mean to me?

The CVRP application and database will be undergoing routine maintenance on Thursday, June 24 from 6AM-8AM Pacific Time. During this time, some website functionality will be limited including new application submission, document upload, and ability to check application status. Please plan to perform application actions outside of this window.

(Last updated 06/08/2021)

Funding is appropriated for the rebate project each year in the State Budget, including a reserved amount for qualified lower-income applicants.

Funding for CVRP has been exhausted, all 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.

Unfortunately, we do not know when or if FY 2021-22 funding will be appropriated for CVRP. CSE is working closely with State officials to provide updates as more information is available. We update our website whenever we have new information, so please continue to check our website homepage for any updates.

If you applied on April 22, 2021 or earlier:

Your rebate amount was reserved when you applied online. You will receive your rebate as long as you meet all requirements and submit correct supporting documents within the required time frame. We advise that you periodically check your status online to ensure you are aware of any further action needed to take your application to approval status. Note: If we find an issue with your application materials, we provide ten days to correct the issue before automatic cancellation.

If you applied for a standard or increased rebate on or after April 23, 2021:

You were placed on a rebate waitlist when you applied online. We will review your application materials and your application will be conditionally approved if you meet all requirements and submit correct supporting documents within the required time frame. Payment for conditionally approved applications on the rebate waitlist will depend on the project receiving more funding from the State of California and may depend on new Terms and Conditions and new CVRP Implementation Manual requirements.

If you applied for Rebate Now on or after April 23, 2021:

Your rebate amount was reserved when you applied online. You will receive your rebate if you meet all requirements and submit correct supporting documents within the required time frame. Applications submitted after your vehicle has been purchased will be cancelled.
