D. For affected motor vehicles subject to a confirmation test, the department may provide a subsidy of up to 50% of the amount spent on emissions related repairs up to a maximum of 50% of the waiver amount for repairs performed to comply with the emission standards prescribed in 9VAC5-91-160 and 9VAC5-91-170.
