TCEQ continues accepting applications for clean engine rebates

Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Source: Texas Commission on Environmental Quality

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is still accepting Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) Rebate Grants Program applications on a first-come, first served basis. The grant program helps pay for the upgrade or replacement of diesel on-road heavy duty vehicles and select non-road equipment.

Eligible on-road vehicles must have a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 8,500 pounds, while non-road equipment must be equipped with at least a 25 horsepower engine. Tables with pre-approved maximum rebate grant amounts for eligible on-road and non-road replacement and repower projects are provided to applicants in the Request for Grant Applications. The tables list the on-road vehicle weight categories and model years and the non-road equipment types, horsepower ranges, and model years eligible for funding.

Grant-funded vehicles and equipment must be operated at least 75 percent of their annual usage within specific counties to include five in the CAPCOG region — Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, Williamson.

A portion of the funding allocated to this program will be set aside for applications from applicants that qualify as a small business, as defined in the TERP Guidelines. Small businesses are encouraged to apply under this program.

Applications will be accepted for consideration during this grant period on a first-come, first-served basis at the front desk, Rm. 1301, 1st floor of Building F on the premises of the TCEQ, no later than 5:00 p.m., Central Time, on May 26, 2017.

Rebate Grants application forms and rebate tables were changed from the draft versions released for 30-day review. Applicants must use the final application forms and refer to the final rebate tables to determine the eligible funding amounts.

Deadline: 5 p.m., Friday, May 26, 2017 or until all funds are awarded
