Enhanced Fleet Modernization Program
EFMP contains two component programs: Scrap-only and Scrap-and-Replace.
Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) implements the scrap-only program statewide through their Consumer Assistance Program. It provides up to $1,500 to lower-income drivers to scrap their old, high polluting vehicle. The Scrap-and-Replace program goes one-step further and provides up to $4,500 to lower-income drivers who scrap an old vehicle and buy a cleaner, more fuel-efficient (35 MPG or better fuel economy rating) vehicle, or $7,500 for alternative mobility options such as transit passes, or a bicycle, in lieu of a replacement vehicle.
Participants who live in or near a disadvantaged community (DAC) (SB 535 De León, Chapter 830, Statutes of 2012; H&SC § 39711-39723) may also be eligible to receive an even higher incentive from Clean Cars 4 All (CC4A) (formerly the EFMP Plus-Up project). CC4A is funded through California Climate Investments.
CARB partners with implementing air districts to execute the EFMP and CC4A programs in their air basins. Incentive amounts to participants are determined by participant’s household income level, whether or not the applicant lives in or near a DAC, and choice of replacement option, with up to $9,500 toward the purchase of an advanced technology replacement vehicle (e.g., hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or zero-emission). For more information on how to apply for funding, see "Implementing Air Districts" on the EFMP webpage.
