The Zero-Emission School Bus Replacement Incentive Program provides monetary incentives for the replacement of existing yellow school buses that transport public school children to and from school with zero-emission school buses in disadvantaged or low-income communities within the District boundaries. Eligible applicants are public school districts, Joint Power Authorities (JPA), and privately owned yellow school buses that are contracted with a public school to transport public school children. Applicants must obtain an executed contract from the SJVAPCD prior to the order or purchase of new all electric school bus.
The District’s Zero-Emission School Bus Infrastructure Program provides funding of up to 100% of eligible costs for the purchase and installation of charging equipment to support charging of new school buses. Visit the Zero-Emission School Bus Infrastructure Program for more information.
The District hosted a public workshop to present, discuss, and receive feedback on the Zero-Emission School Bus Replacement Incentive Program and the Zero-Emission School Bus Infrastructure Incentive Program. Attendance at this workshop is NOT a requirement for submitting an application.
For additional information, please contact program staff by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (559) 230-5800.
The maximum eligible incentive amount is calculated up to the cost-effectiveness limit, not to exceed the maximum funding amount of $400,000. Maximum of 10 school buses per entity.
