DEP Revises Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebates For Individuals

The Department of Environmental Protection has revised its criteria for rebates to individuals purchasing new and used vehicles under the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program.  (formal notice)
Plug-in hybrid, plug-in electric, natural gas, propane and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are eligible.
To qualify for the rebate, the alternative fuel vehicle must be registered and primarily operated in the state and rebate request forms must be submitted no later than 6 months after the vehicle is purchased.
The purchase price of any vehicle must be less than $50,000.
One-time, preowned ATV vehicles with 75,000 miles or less and a true market value of $50,000 or less are eligible if--
-- The resident receiving the rebate must register the one-time preowned vehicle at an address within an air quality nonattainment area for ozone within the following counties: Allegheny, Armstrong, Bucks, Butler, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Philadelphia, Washington and Westmoreland.
-- The resident receiving the rebate must register the one-time preowned vehicle at any address in this Commonwealth and must have a household income that is below 200% of the Federal Income Poverty level, as defined by the federal Department of Health and Human Services. Pennsylvania residents who apply for a rebate under this condition will be required to report and verify all earned and unearned income with their application for determining eligibility. A valid source of income verification may include Federal or State tax returns. Verification documents must be included when submitting the rebate request form.
Approximately 500 rebates at all levels will be available. The Program will be offered until the AFIG Program moneys are exhausted, or December 31, 2017, whichever occurs first.
