Voucher Funding Amounts


Vouchers are currently available to fleets across New York State interested in purchasing Class 4-8 medium- and heavy-duty vehicles that are full Battery Electric (BEV) or Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCEV).

Vouchers cover a percentage of the incremental cost of the vehicle, the difference in cost between the BEV/FCEV truck or bus and a comparable diesel vehicle. Voucher amounts are subject to funding availability and applicable per-project caps.
