Not sure if this has been posted about, it's California Clean Vehicle Assistance Program (CVAP) for low income people.

Coupled with the SJVAPCD 3k they almost pay you to drive electric if you lease. For some of the deals right now you can earn money on the deal. ;)

I almost bought a car from a guy in L.A. who was selling cars from a "low income electric vehicle study" in 2017. I didn't buy a car but I used the guy for Intel because I thought what he was doing was fascinating.
He said:
"Most poor people flat out didn't want them"
"Lived in an apartment with no where to charge"
"Didn't have a place to park"
"Rented a house that didn't have drive way"
I'm sure there's plenty of poor people in the country that have a place to park and charge.
"THE ABOVE POST CONTAINS MISLEADING AND INACCURATE INFORMATION. PLEASE CONSIDER IT OPINION, NOT FACT". -someone who I offended and is unable to produce the facts in question.

That acronym doesn't exactly roll off the top of the tongue. :) I had to look it up to confirm the area I thought it referred to: San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. Unfortunately (?), I don't live in that area.

I didn't realize that it spanned a larger area than I thought:

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

GCC:
California Energy Commission approves $384M plan to accelerate zero-emission transportation; 50% of funds to benefit disadvantaged communities
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/1 ... 5-cec.html

. . . The 2020-2023 Investment Plan Update for the CEC’s Clean Transportation Program (formerly known as the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program) prioritizes funding for zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure, related workforce development and manufacturing.

The plan approved includes:

$132.9 million for light-duty EV charging infrastructure.

$129.8 million for medium- and heavy-duty ZEVs and infrastructure.

$70 million for hydrogen refueling infrastructure.

$25 million for zero-and near-zero-carbon fuel production and supply.

$10 million for recovery and reinvestment.

$9 million for ZEV manufacturing.

$7.5 million for workforce development. . . .
