On June 3, 2020, the NYC Department of Transportation launched its Clean Trucks Program using $9.8 million in Volkswagen Settlement funds allocated by DEC for the project. The Clean Trucks Program uses incentives to replace older, higher polluting diesel trucks with battery-electric, compressed natural gas, diesel-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid-electric, and new diesel trucks with much lower emissions. The Clean Trucks Program will provide funding ranging from $12,000 to $185,000 per truck replacement depending on the fuel type. The old diesel vehicles must be scrapped to receive the incentive.
