Passenger Vehicle Programs

Passenger vehicles and other mobile sources contribute over 70% of the air pollutants in San Diego County.  To help achieve regional and local air quality goals, the APCD is developing programs to provide monetary incentives to San Diego residents aimed at reducing emissions from passenger vehicles.

Clean Cars 4 All

The San Diego region program is currently under development.  We expect to start accepting applications in mid to late 2020. 

The Clean Cars 4 All program will provide incentive funding for qualifying low-income residents of state-designated disadvantaged communities to trade in older passenger cars and trucks and replace them with newer hybrid and electric vehicles or other transportation options.

More information about the state Clean Cars 4 All program is available here.

If you would like to be notified by the San Diego Air Pollution Control District when the program opens and applications to participate are accepted, please sign up to receive updates.

Scrap Car Reimbursement Assistance Program (SCRAP)

The San Diego region program is currently under development.  We expect to start accepting applications in early 2020.

The SCRAP will provide incentive funding to residents in San Diego County to voluntarily retire their pre-1997 vehicles to reduce air pollution. Qualifying applicants will be paid $1,000 per retired vehicle, subject to the funding availability. 

If you would like to be notified by the San Diego Air Pollution Control District when the program opens and applications to participate are accepted, please email to hugo.salgado@sdcounty.ca.gov
