About the Program

Clean Cars 4 All is a Sac Metro Air District program to help income-qualified residents buy a zero or near zero emission car. To participate, you must turn in a 2006 model year or older car.

THE SAC METRO AIR DISTRICT PROGRAM WILL GIVE RESIDENTS TWO OPTIONS:

  • “SCRAP & REPLACE”  Up to $9,500 towards the purchase or lease of a new CVRP Eligible  Plug-In Hybrid, Battery Electric or Fuel Cell Vehicle OR up to $9,500 towards the purchase of a used PHEV, EV or Fuel Cell Vehicle that is less than 8 years old with less than 75,000 miles and a clean title. Vehicles must be purchased through an authorized CC4A Dealer. Be sure to look for clean vehicle rebate programs like CVRP for additional savings after the purchase.
    • (Coming later) Participants may be eligible for an additional $2,000 in charging support.
  • “SCRAP & FORGET” (Coming later) – Soon a participant can opt to go "car-free", and receive up to $7,500 in value to use for car and bike sharing, public transit, or to buy an e-bike.

Clean Air and Climate Relevance

  • The Sac Metro Air District, as a partner with the state of California, is excited to add this mobility program to the long list of other innovations emerging in the region.
  • Transportation emissions, congestion, and a growing trend of single-occupant vehicle use are increasing greenhouse gas emissions and making it more challenging to meet clean air and climate change goals.
  • With programs like Clean Cars 4 All, we can imagine a future less dependent on combustion vehicles for our transportation needs.
  • This program is an example of the transformation of transportation taking place locally and across many regions in the state, the nation, and the world.
  • We in Sacramento want to be the game changers for future mobility.

Program Funding

  • ​$5 million from California Climate Investments administered by the California Air Resources Board. The funding is expected to fund 300 to 500 vehicles and about 100 alternative transportation options.
