TCEQ announces alternative fuel, natural gas fueling station grants

Monday, December 14, 2015

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality announced up to $11.8 million in grants is available to eligible individuals, businesses, and governmental entities to continue the development of a network of alternative fuel and/or natural gas fueling stations to serve as a foundation for a self-sustaining market for alternative fuel vehicles.

The Clean Transportation Triangle (CTT) and Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP) grants are part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan and are offered to eligible entities that intend to build, own, and operate alternative fuel or natural gas fueling stations in eligible Texas counties.

The CTT/AFFP joint request for grant applications (RFGA) closes at 5 p.m., Tuesday, March 8, 2016.

Because of the similarities between these programs, the TCEQ is soliciting applications for the programs under this joint RFGA. It is providing joint application forms for applicants to apply to one or both programs, depending on the eligibility of the project.

CTT/AFFP grants offset a portion of the cost of either the construction of new facilities dispensing natural gas or alternative fuels, or the substantial reconstruction of existing facilities to provide new services or capabilities dispensing natural gas or alternative fuels. Eligible fuels for the CTT program include compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas. Eligible alternative fuels for the AFFP include biodiesel, hydrogen, methanol, natural gas, propane, and electricity. 

The TCEQ has scheduled three application workshops to review the grant requirements and the application process. Reservations are not required.
