Available Voucher Funds
In order to promote broad application of CORE funding, individual equipment types have been grouped into funding categories, and no one category may receive more than 25 percent of total CORE voucher funding within the first six months after program launch (i.e., February 1st until August 1st). For the purposes of this funding cap, six funding categories have been identified and are listed below. CARB will continue to evaluate needs in the funding categories after the first six months and may continue limits, if warranted. Once the funding for a particular category has reached its cap, new voucher requests for that equipment type (including conversions of that equipment type) will be placed on a contingency list until the cap is lifted. However, there is no guarantee that funding will be available for the voucher requests on the contingency list. The contingency list will be managed by CALSTART.
Because the total funding for CORE is $41 million, each of the six equipment categories below are bound by a 25 percent limit of $10.25 million for the first six months. Once any of the equipment categories below reach $10.25 million of requested funding, additional acceptance of voucher requests in that equipment category will be made on a case by case basis.
