The Clean Fuels Incentive Program (CFIP), administered by the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA), provides grants to fleets for the retrofit or purchase of new AFVs. Grant award amounts vary and may cover up to 100% of the incremental AFV cost. Grants are available in the following amounts:

AFV Technology Vehicle Class Maximum Grant Award per Vehicle
Electric Vehicles Class 1-2 $5,000
Natural Gas, Propane, Biodiesel, and Hydrogen Vehicles Class 1-2 $7,500
Natural Gas, Propane, and Biodiesel Vehicles Class 3-8 $50,000
Electric and Hydrogen Vehicles Class 3-7 $80,000
Electric and Hydrogen Vehicles Class 8 $150,000

Eligible applicants must be a fleet vehicle operator or purchaser and may include school districts, nonprofits, commercial entities, corporations, and local and municipal governments. AFVs purchased for individual or personal use are ineligible. Vehicles receiving funding from other state programs are ineligible. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis, with equity and environmental justice considerations as part of the evaluation criteria.
