CAPCOG will help with diesel vehicle replacement, repower grant applications

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

CAPCOG’s Air Quality Program is offering assistance to entities interested in applying for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s Texas Emission Reduction Plan (TERP) Rebate Grant Program.

The rebate grant program provides funding for replacement or repower projects of diesel on-road and certain non-road equipment and vehicles. It is a simplified application process under the Emissions Reduction Incentive Grant Program. The program process will open for applications on Feb. 9 and will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.

The CAPCOG Air Quality Program will support local organizations and businesses with determining their eligibility for the grant and/or help with the completion of the application.

> Contact Linda Daubert, air quality program specialist, for assistance with the grant.

Part of the funds allocated to the rebate grant program will be set aside for applications from entities that qualify as a Small Business under the TERP Guidelines for Emissions Reduction Grants. Small and large businesses are encouraged to apply.

To qualify, vehicles and equipment must have 75 percent of their annual usage spent in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, Williamson, or 34 other Texas counties.
