Dear 2017 Chevrolet Volt Owner,

The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project is glad to inform you that your rebate, which was placed on a waitlist due to the exhaustion of CVRP funds earlier this year, will be paid in the coming months. New funding was approved for CVRP in September 2016, and we expect to receive funds and begin issuing rebate checks in December 2016. Your rebate will be paid as soon as possible after funds are available, and you will receive an email notification when we mail your check.

We appreciate your patience during the waitlist period. If you have any questions, please visit cleanvehiclerebate.org/FAQs or contact us using the email address or phone number below.

Sincerely,

CVRP Staff

I am surprised they sent this email out so late. Their website was updated with this same info a month ago !

I see they are in a particular neighborhood in San Diego just off I-15...wonder if you could walk in for a check, lol?

There are questions I have about this program-
I know it is pro-rated and you have to pay it back if you sell your car before 30 months, but what if you total your car out and insurance writes it off? What happens if you just buy another one? Can I get the $1500 again minus the difference of what I owed back on the first?

If I sell it after 28 months of ownership, how will they know- do they tie that VIN number to dmv records?

If you trade it for another, you owe the prorated remainder back on the traded car, but you can apply for the 1500 again on the new car. These are treated as separate transactions. At least they were in my case.

They get VIN information on the application so they can find out if you sell it.
From the communications I had with them it wasn't clear whether the prorating of the original rebate was always the case or whether
they had the option to do that if the owner came to them first.

I don't know what to make of this... If you make less than $35,000/yr then you probably aren't going to buy a new PHEV or EV. You aren't likely to realize the full $7500 tax credit because your federal liability will be much less than that.

The wording is confusing, but the low income subsidy is already in place, but they are adding $500 to the levels already established previously.
