Clean Vehicle Rebate Project

The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) is an electric vehicle rebate program funded by the California Air Resources Board and administered by The Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE). Community Resource Project partnered with CSE to outreach to vulnerable residents in the community, and inform them about the options they have when it comes to purchasing or leasing a new electric vehicle. CVRP offers rebates from $1,000 to $7,000 for the purchase or lease of new, eligible zero-emission vehicles, including electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell vehicles. Additional incentives are available for income-eligible residents through CVRP, other programs, and utility providers. 

To learn more about this program, you can visit us at upcoming outreach events in Sacramento County. Follow us on Facebook for more details. You can also visit the CVRP website and use their Savings Calculator to determine what incentive programs are available for your purchase or lease of a clean vehicle. 

Portable Battery Program

Pacific Gas and Electric’s (PG&E) Portable Battery Program provides backup batteries to lessen the impact of Public Safety Power Shutoff events on customers who rely on medical devices. Community Resource Project partnered with PG&E to reach Yuba County residents who are on medical baseline, and live in High Wildfire Threat Districts, or areas prone to wildfire and or Public Safety Power Shutoff events. CRP works with predetermined customers in Yuba County to assess their emergency preparedness and medical device information to match them with the best battery available for their needs. When a customer cannot be assisted with a battery, CRP works with FREED, a local Independent Living Center, to provide alternative options. 

If you are an eligible Yuba County resident who needs to reach our staff, you can call us at 1-833-232-3355. You can also call PG&E to check if you are eligible for this program.
