The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) Program is accepting grant applications for the upgrade or replacement of older heavy-duty vehicles, non-road equipment, marine vessels, locomotives, and stationary equipment.

Applications for the Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG) Program must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Aug. 15, 2018. Previous ERIG or Rebate grant applications will not be accepted. Individuals and organizations, private and government, from 42 counties can apply for the grant to include five counties in the CAPCOG ten-county region – Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson.

The goal of the ERIG program is to provide grant funding opportunities to offset the cost of projects that reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) from high-emitting mobile diesel sources.

In conjunction with opening the ERIG grant process, the TCEQ has scheduled application workshops to provide an overview of the application process. The program has several new changes, so the TCEQ is encouraging prospective applicants to attend a workshop. All workshops are free and no registration is required. The Austin workshop will be from 2 to 4:30 p.m., Friday, June 22, 2018 at the TCEQ Austin Office, Building F, 12100 Park 35 Circle in Austin.
