ADDITIONAL PROGRAM INFORMATION
NOTE FOR REPLACEMENT VOUCHER RECIPIENTS: On September 1, 2011, new replacement vehicle requirements were implemented due to legislative changes made by the 82nd Texas Legislature. If a replacement vehicle is purchased on or after September 1, 2012, the requirements must be followed. These details are included in the replacement voucher envelope.
For repair or replacement assistance, a voucher must be presented to a listed participating repair facility or dealership at the time of the emissions repairs or vehicle purchase. No reimbursements are allowed if emissions repairs or vehicle purchase are made prior to receiving a valid voucher or used at a non-participating facility.
