The Onroad Rebate Program is funded through Pennsylvania’s allocation from the State Mitigation Trust. The calendar years (CYs) 2018-2019 funding available under the Onroad Rebate Program is $12,000,000. DEP will reevaluate the program requirements and rebate levels following the issue of $12 million in vouchers, or by December 31, 2019, whichever occurs first. Applications for rebates will be accepted, reviewed and approved on a first come, first served basis.


DEP will not issue more than $500,000 in Onroad Rebate vouchers in total to any entity (government or non-government) at any time, or allow any entity to hold active rebate vouchers for more than 10 vehicles at any time. If an applicant has reached the $500,000 or 10 vehicle voucher maxima, additional rebate applications from the applicant will only be evaluated after DEP approves the redemption of a voucher or vouchers previously issued, such that the entity is then below the $500,000 and 10 vehicle maxima.
