Available Voucher Funds
In order to promote the broad application of CORE funding, individual equipment types have been grouped into nine funding categories, and no one category may receive more than 20 percent of total CORE voucher funding within the first six months after the program launch. CORE will be launching with $125,000,000 for freight and other heavy-duty off-road equipment. For the purposes of this funding cap, nine 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. If funding caps for equipment categories are lifted, projects deployed in DAC and/or operated by a small business will be prioritized to receive funding. However, there is no guarantee that funding will be available for the voucher requests on the contingency list.
