DEP Accepting Applications for Pennsylvania State Clean Diesel Grants

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced today that applications are now being accepted for the Pennsylvania State Clean Diesel Grant Program.

School districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, state agencies, nonprofit entities, corporations, and limited liability companies or partnerships incorporated or registered in Pennsylvania that operate diesel fleets are eligible to apply.

“Supporting alternative transportation technologies improves our air quality and reduces the negative impacts caused by excessive greenhouse gas emissions,” said Acting DEP Secretary John Quigley. “I am pleased to support any and all efforts to improve air quality in Pennsylvania.”

The clean diesel program’s goal is to improve air quality by decreasing emissions from diesel-powered motor vehicles. The program supports projects that re-power or retrofit fleet vehicles to curb emissions; purchase and install idle-reduction technology; or purchase clean alternative-fuel fleet vehicles.

Since the program’s inception in 2008, DEP has awarded more than $1.7 million in grants.

The grant program is funded through an annual allocation from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s State Clean Diesel Program.

Applications will be accepted through March 31.
