The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) Program announced it is now accepting applications for the Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG). The grant funds the upgrade or replacement of older heavy-duty vehicles, non-road equipment, and stationary equipment.

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

The grant 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.

Grant Application Workshops, Dealer Trainings, and Application Assistance Sessions will be scheduled to provide an overview of the ERIG application process. The ERIG program has several new changes this year. Plan to attend a workshop to learn more about new program requirements and new grant application forms.
