Round 4 funding achieved the goal to fund the replacement of 100 older diesel trucks!

Upon distribution of the Round 4 funding, the HPCTP will have replaced, retrofitted or scrapped over 600 older heavy polluting diesel trucks from the South Bronx and NYC. The HPCTP has also scrapped and replaced 28 older heavy polluting diesel fueled transport refrigeration units.

The HPCTP incentive rebate funding is for the South Bronx business communities of Hunts Point and Port Morris interested in the replacement of older Class 3 to Class 8 trucks with a model year 2016 or newer truck with a 2010 U.S. EPA emission compliant or newer diesel engine or alternative fuel engine (hybrid diesel-electric, compressed natural gas or battery electric truck).

The 2017 rebate incentive caps range from $10,000 for a Class 3 diesel fueled replacement truck up to $30,000 for a Class 8 diesel fueled replacement truck. The 2017 rebate incentive caps range from $17,000 to $90,000 for an alternative fuel replacement truck. Scrapping of the older truck being replaced is required. Diesel exhaust retrofit technology rebate amounts are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Vision Zero is a comprehensive plan to improve safety in New York City. The HPCTP supports NYC's efforts on Vision Zero by requiring Vehicle Safety Enhancements to be installed and maintained on funded trucks. Vehicle Safety Enhancements include: side mirrors with a split mirror design; cross-over mirrors; passenger door down view mirror; a backup alert system; and side guards. These enhancements increase driver visibility and help prevent and lessen the severity of crashes involving pedestrians, bicycles and other motor vehicles.

The NYCDOT and the NYC Business Integrity Commission have also worked together to provide incentive funding for the early adoption of Vision Zero side guards within the private waste hauler fleet serving NYC. To date 88 private waste hauler trucks have been outfitted with side guards, with the cost for purchase and installation being shared by the truck owner and the NYCDOT.


The Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program is accepting applications on a first-come, first-served basis for a voluntary incentive-based clean vehicle rebate program for truck owners and fleets that are based and/or operate in the Hunts Point or Port Morris communities.  The Program aims to modernize older diesel trucks by offering rebate incentives for truck scrappage, truck replacement with new 2010 EPA emissions-compliant diesel or alternative fuel trucks and exhaust retrofit technologies.
