The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) announced a second round of grants to continue the development of a network of natural gas and other alternative fuel fueling stations. Seven counties in the CAPCOG region are in the grant’s eligibility area including Lee and Fayette counties.

Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP) grants are meant to help build a foundation for a self-sustaining market for alternative fuel vehicles in the state. Grants are available to eligible individuals, businesses, and governmental entities in 83 counties. Counties in the CAPCOG region include Bastrop, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Travis and Williamson. The TCEQ will accept applications until 5 p.m. CST, Thursday, March 29, 2018.

AFFP grants are part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) and are offered to eligible entities that intend to build, own, and operate alternative fuel or natural gas fueling stations in the Clean Transportation Zone. AFFP grants offset a portion of the cost of either the construction of new facilities dispensing natural gas or alternative fuels, or the expansion of existing facilities to provide new services or capabilities. Eligible fuels for the AFFP include compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG); biodiesel; hydrogen; methanol; propane (LPG); and electricity.
