Clean Diesel Grant Applications Now Being Accepted By DEP

The Department of Environmental Protection is now accepting applications for the State Clean Diesel Grant Program until December 15. (formal notice)
The Department is seeking applications for projects that will replace, repower or retrofit fleet diesel-powered school or transit buses. Funding is available for public and private entities that operate diesel-powered fleets throughout this Commonwealth.
These entities may include school districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, other State agencies, nonprofit entities, corporations, limited liability companies or partnerships incorporated or registered in this Commonwealth.
Projects must use technologies certified or verified by the EPA or the California Air Resources Board to lower diesel emissions. The technology may be a single technology or a combination of available technologies.
The majority of the fleet's annual operation time must occur within this Commonwealth.
The Department will not reimburse grant recipients for project costs incurred prior to the grant performance period set forth in the applicable grant agreement.
The application package including guidance, instructions and application forms will be available online on DEP's Diesel Retrofit Information webpage or under keyword "Clean Diesel" or by contacting Martin T. Felion, Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Air Quality, Air Resource Management Division, 12th Floor, 400 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101, 717-787-9702.
