TCEQ offers clean school bus grants

Thursday, January 25, 2018
Source: Texas Commission on Environmental Quality

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) started taking applications for the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP), Texas Clean School Bus (TCSB) program. The program grants money to school systems to replace pre-2007 diesel-fueled school buses with new ones or to cover costs of eligible retrofit projects.

TCEQ will accept applications on first-come, first-served basis until 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, 2019, or until all available funds have been awarded.

Texas school districts, charter schools and transportation systems provided by countywide school districts can help Texas reduce air emissions from diesel-powered school buses by applying for the TCSB program. School buses proposed for replacement or retrofit must be used on a regular daily route during the standard school year and have at least five years of useful life remaining.

Maximum grant amounts for school bus replacement projects are included in the TCSB Request for Grant Applications. TCSB grants may reimburse up to 100 percent of the cost to purchase and install a retrofit device and associated equipment.
