Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Funding
The Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant (AFIG) Program provides financial assistance for qualified projects; information on alternative fuels, AFVs, and HEVs; and advanced vehicle technology research, development, and demonstration. Projects that result in product commercialization and the expansion of Pennsylvania companies are favored in the selection process.
The AFIG Program also offers rebates to assist eligible residents with the incremental cost of the purchase of new AFVs, including all-electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), natural gas vehicles (NGVs), and propane vehicles. The rebate amounts are $2,000 for qualified EVs and PHEVs and $1,000 for NGVs and propane vehicles. Rebates are available until 250 rebates are disbursed or December 31, 2016, whichever occurs first.
For more information, including forms and detailed requirements, see the AFIG Program and Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebates websites. (Reference Title 73 Pennsylvania Statutes, Chapter 18E, Section 1647.3)
