The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality will hold seven grant application workshops for its Texas Emissions Reduction Plan, Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG) program throughout December to include one Austin workshop on Dec. 10.

The ERIG program funds the upgrade or replacement of older heavy-duty vehicles, non-road equipment, and stationary equipment. Each workshop will provide an overview of program requirements and the application process. Workshops are free of charge and registration is not required.

ERIG is eligible to any person who operates or plans to operate on-road heavy-duty vehicles, non-road equipment, or stationary engines primarily in one or more of the eligible counties. For infrastructure projects, persons owning or operating the infrastructure in an eligible county may also be eligible for funding.

Applicants can include individuals, corporations, organizations, governments or governmental subdivisions or agencies, school districts, business trusts, partnerships, associations, or any other legal entity. Applicants must have the legal authority to dispose of the vehicle being replaced.

Eligible CAPCOG counties for the grant include: Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson.

Application submissions will have a 5 p.m., Feb. 2, 2016 deadline.
