SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California’s highly anticipated e-bike incentive is expected to begin within the second quarter of the year, the Air Resources Board announced Wednesday.
The $7.5 million program will be limited to state residents ages 18 or older with a gross annual household income less than 300% of the federal poverty level.
The base incentive is $1,000 but can be as much as $2,000.
Qualifying individuals can receive an additional $750 for cargo and adaptive e-bikes and another $250 if they reside in a disadvantaged or low-income community or have a gross income that is 225% or less than the federal poverty level.
Only one incentive is available per individual.
