DEP Now Accepting Applications For Medium, Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Fleet Grants

The Department of Environmental Protection is now accepting applications for grants through the Driving PA Forward Initiative's
Medium and Heavy-Duty (MHD) Zero-Emission Vehicle Fleet Pilot Grant Program.  The deadline for applications is March 1.  (formal notice)

The Department expects to make approximately $13 million available for award and there is no maximum cap set on the award for any individual grantee.

The proposed project must include replacement of either 20% of the applicant's fleet or at least five diesel-powered, onroad MHD trucks with ZEVs. Projects may not propose fewer than three vehicle replacements. Funding is available for the vehicles as well as associated infrastructure, including chargers.

Applications for fleets which operate primarily in EJ areas will receive additional consideration in the application scoring process. Awardees will be required to provide detailed data and information to the Department following vehicle purchases to support Department case studies evaluating the environmental benefits of the Program.

For more information, visit the Driving PA Forward MHD-ZEV Fleet webpage.  Questions should be directed to or (717) 787-9495.
