Paper Application Form
Funding for OCVRP has been exhausted and a waitlist is in effect for all applications. Qualified applicants who purchased an eligible vehicle prior to May 1, 2023, will receive payment when the program receives more funding in 2024.
At this time, we anticipate reopening in March 2024, when funding is replenished. The OCVRP website will be updated when the program receives funding, so please continue to check the website homepage for program updates.
