The AirCheckTexas Drive a Clean Machine Program is acceptinig 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.
Administered locally by the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), 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.
North Texans with vehicles that have failed the emissions portion of the state inspection in the past 30 days or are at least 10 years old may apply for assistance if they meet income criteria. A family of four earning $72,750 or less per year may receive assistance.
Vehicles must be registered in one of the participating counties of 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.
