In order to make clean vehicles more accessible to a greater number of California drivers, especially in communities that are highly impacted by air pollution, the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) is implementing increased incentive levels for low- and moderate-income consumers and high-income eligibility caps. The California Air Resources Board (ARB) approved the changes in June 2015, as directed by the Charge Ahead California Initiative established by Senate Bill 1275 (De León).
