Funding Opportunity

The NY Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced $9.8 million in funding to support New York City's Clean Truck Program.  The New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) will administer $9.8 million and provide point-of-sale rebates to local goods movement businesses that purchase medium and heavy-duty all-electric, zero tailpipe emission trucks, as well as alternative fueled and low-emission diesel trucks. Truck replacements are targeted at privately owned trucks that service New York City Industrial Business Zones located in or adjacent to Potential Environmental Justice Areas (PEJAs). DEC considers PEJAs to be communities of color or low-income communities that experience a disproportionate share of environmental harms such as vehicle emissions and pollution.  The rebate program provides incentives from $12,000 to $185,000 per truck replacement are available depending on fuel type and truck class size. The point-of-sale rebates are available to commercial fleets that replace existing 1992 – 2009 diesel-powered medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Older trucks must be permanently removed from service and scrapped.  The website address for the NYC Clean Trucks Program is: The notice indicates that truck owners that do not qualify for the New York City Clean Trucks Program because their trucks are not domiciled or operated in the city's Industrial Business Zones may still qualify for equivalent incentives provided through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program (NYTVIP).  More details available here:
