(Victor Valley)– In an effort to scrap older, highly polluting vehicles in the Southland, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has launched a new incentive program to help low and moderate income residents purchase newer and cleaner vehicles.
Residents may be eligible to receive between $2,500 and $9,500 to purchase a newer, cleaner, more fuel efficient vehicle depending on their income level, the vehicle model purchased and where they live. Low income residents living in an environmentally disadvantaged area and purchasing one of the cleanest vehicles available would receive the highest incentive amount.
“Our clean air progress relies on increasing the number of cleaner vehicles,” said William A. Burke, Ed.D., chair of the SCAQMD Board. “We hope these incentives will encourage residents to make the switch to lower-emission vehicles.”
