Some Bay Area residents might be able to get help replacing their old cars with clean air vehicles.
A new grant by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District is offering up to $9,500 to low-income families to help buy an electric, hybrid-electric or plug-in hybrid cars.
The ‘Clean Vehicles for All’ program also allows up to $4,500 to go towards using Bay Area transit.
The program is only open to people who own cars built in 1996 or before and only people earning 400-percent of the federal poverty level or below.
The air district grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are depleted.
