[ARCHIVED] Funds available to help retire air polluting cars

North Texans whose vehicles have failed the emissions portion of the state inspection in the past 30 days, or are at least 10 years old, are encouraged to apply for assistance if they meet income criteria. For example, a family of four earning $72,750 or less per year may receive assistance. Vehicles must be registered in one of the participating counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall or Tarrant. Assistance through this application-based program is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applications in English and Spanish are available at the link below. Once completed, sign and mail or fax the application and required information to :
AirCheckTexas Program
PO Box 5888
Arlington, TX 76005-5888
or fax to 817-608-2315

This program is administered by North Central Texas Council of Governments, please do not contact the City of Cedar Hill for information.
AirCheckTexas provides qualifying motorists vouchers worth up to $3,000 toward vehicle replacement ($3,500 for hybrids and some other fuel-efficient models) or repair vouchers of up to $600.
The AirCheckTexas Drive a Clean Machine Program continues to accept applications for replacement vouchers after the Texas Legislature restored full funding to what has become one of the most successful air quality programs in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Currently, approximately $16 million is available to North Texas vehicle owners.
The additional funding approved by the Texas Legislature is expected to allow NCTCOG to provide vouchers for the replacement of approximately 6,000 vehicles. In fiscal year 2015, 547 vehicles were replaced with the help of AirCheckTexas vouchers, pushing the total to 31,132 replacements since the program began in 2002.
