  3. MassDEP Reviews Your Application

    The agency begins by verifying your eligibility and checking your application for completeness. If you are not eligible, MassDEP will notify you by email.

    After receiving your complete application, MassDEP will issue you an approval letter and contract documents within 30 days.

    • Complete Your MassEVIP Project

      Once you sign and return the contract documents to MassDEP, you have 180 days to acquire the EV(s).

      As a public entity, your organization is eligible to use statewide contracts to acquire electric passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, special services vehicles, and police pursuit vehicles.

      MassDEP provides MassEVIP incentive payments directly to vendors on statewide contract, or directly to your organization if you select one or more vendors not on statewide contract.
