Vehicle Repair and Replacement Assistance Program

Purpose of the Program

The Weber-Morgan Health Department (WMHD) was recently awarded a $1,219,911 grant by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which is called the Vehicle Repair and Replacement Assistance Program (VRRAP). The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance to low-income owners of vehicles that fail an emission test. Through the VRRAP, qualifying low-income individuals will be offered financial assistance to either repair the vehicle or replace it with a newer, cleaner vehicle.

Procedures for Vehicle Owners to Obtain a Repair Voucher (2004 or newer)

The Weber-Morgan Health Department (WMHD) will issue qualifying vehicle owners up to $1,000 towards emissions-related repairs. The benefits will be set on a sliding scale based on how the vehicle owner's household income compares to the federal poverty level. Table 1 outlines the sliding scale assistance guide.

Table 1: Repair Sliding Scale Assistance Guide
Household Income Compared to Federal Poverty Level Assistance Amount Maximum Benefits
200% and below 100% of repair bill to pass an emission inspection Up to $1,000
201% to 250% 75% of repair bill to pass an emission inspection Up to $750
251% to 300% 50% of repair bill to pass an emission inspection Up to $500

Table 2 outlines the current Federal Poverty Guidelines and the household incomes that will be used to determine a vehicle owner's eligibility for the VRRAP. Income will be determined by using the Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) on the most recent Federal Income Tax form.
