U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program
The Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program will support projects that achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions, particularly from fleets operating at or servicing goods movement facilities located in areas designated as having poor air quality. Further, priority for funding will be given to projects which result in outcomes that benefit affected communities, those that engage affected communities with respect to the design and performance of the project, and those which can demonstrate the ability to promote and continue efforts to reduce emissions after the project has ended.
Amount: A total of $40,000,000 is available to award two to eight cooperative agreements per Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) region. Awards may range up to $4,000,000 each.
Eligibility: Regional, state, or local agencies; tribal governments (or intertribal consortia) and native villages; port authorities, which have jurisdiction over transportation or air quality; and nonprofit organizations or institutions that: a) represent or provide pollution reduction or educational services to diesel fleets or b) have, as their principal purpose, the promotion of transportation or air quality.
