TCEQ seeks funding natural gas vehicles in seven CAPCOG counties

Thursday, May 24, 2018

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has made available $15.5 million in grant funds for those seeking to repower heavy- or medium-duty vehicles to use natural gas or for those looking to replace heavy- or medium-duty with natural gas vehicles. Applicants must operate mostly in the Texas Clean Transportation Zone, which includes seven CAPCOG counties — Bastrop, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Travis and Williamson.

The Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program encourages entities to replace existing diesel or gasoline vehicles with natural gas vehicles or to repower their engines with natural gas engines. Eligible applicants are those that own, lease, or commercially finance a heavy-duty or medium-duty vehicle that is operated in Texas. Applicants can be individuals, corporations, organizations, governments or governmental subdivisions or agencies, school districts, business trusts, partnerships, associations, or any other legal entity.

TCEQ plans to close the application process on May 31, 2019.
