Santa Monica (Calif.) income-verified e-bike voucher program to kick off in 2024

  • Date: 09/16/2023

Income-qualified Santa Monica residents are one step closer to an opportunity to receive up to $2,000 toward a new e-bike, thanks to a grant-funded City voucher program highlighted Tuesday to the City Council.

The Office of Sustainability and the Environment is applying for $157,000 in funding from the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program to provide approximately 75 vouchers to income-qualifying households. If the grant application is successful, the City anticipates funding in early 2024 and, after a community outreach period, the vouchers would be distributed via an estimated three lotteries taking place in spring 2024.
