CHEAPR is EVolving!

The CHEAPR pilot program is currently transitioning to the new CHEAPR program established under Public Act 19-117. The new program will offer rebates for both new and used electric vehicles! The CHEAPR board is reassessing current program incentive levels for new EVs and evaluating the implementation of the used EV incentive component. Current incentive levels will remain in effect until the new CHEAPR program is launched later this year.  Stay tuned, incentive levels may change in 2020.
