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, HEVs, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles; 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 electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), hydrogen or fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), natural gas vehicles (NGVs), and propane vehicles. Rebates of $2,000 are available for qualified EVs and PHEVs until 250 rebates are disbursed or June 30, 2016, whichever occurs first. Rebates of $1,000 are available for FCEVs, NGVs and propane vehicles.
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)
