The California Air Resources Board announced millions more in funding for state programs to help truckers comply with the state's emissions regulations.

CARB voted to move $8 million from other clean vehicle projects into its Truck Loan Assistance Program. The program helps small-business fleet owners finance truck upgrades required under the CARB’s In-Use Truck and Bus Regulation. Since 2009, this program has provided about $210 million in private financing to help truck owners purchase cleaner trucks, exhaust retrofits and truck efficiency upgrades.

The Legislature also recently provided another $18 million for Truck Loan Assistance Program.

In addition, funding for this year’s Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project was increased by $10 million to $15 million. This program provides vouchers of up to $55,000 to help California fleets purchase cleaner, advanced technology trucks and buses. CARB expects vouchers to become available at participating dealerships beginning in December.
