These grants cover 80% of the CNG, LPG or EV new vehicle option cost, applicable to Class 2 through Class 8 vehicles up to limits that are different for private sector and public sector fleets (local and state government fleets).
Fleets that receive grant funding must operate each vehicle (60% of its mileage) in the 11-county air quality non-attainment area, essentially the Front Range of Colorado from Fort Collins and Greeley to Colorado Springs. For public sector fleets only, the DOLA program can provide grants for vehicles located outside of the 11-county area and may provide complementary funding to fleets that receive RAQC grants. For private sector fleets state-wide, the alternative fuel tax credit program is also available. As a result, private sector fleets that receive the RAQC grants and tax credits can off-set most of the CNG vehicle option cost much like public sector fleets can do with just the RAQC or DOLA grants.
