Charge Ahead Rebate Income Eligibility Calculator

Rebate availability depends on program funding at the time of vehicle purchase or lease. Due to high demand and limited funding, the Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program will be open for a short time in 2024. Vehicles must be purchased or leased from April 3 through June 3, 2024, to be eligible for a rebate. Vehicles purchased or leased either before April 3, 2024, or on or after June 4, 2024, are not eligible to apply for the rebate. Applicants have six months from their date of purchase or lease to apply. Low- and moderate-income households can prequalify for the $5,000 Charge Ahead rebate by completing the application now.
