The Texas Clean School Bus Grant Program Accepting Applications Through November 30

Monday, August 20, 2012

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is offering grant funding through the Texas Clean School Bus Grant Program. This grant program is designed to improve the health of school children and bus drivers by reducing emissions of diesel exhaust from school buses. The TCEQ provides grant money to purchase and install devices on school buses to reduce emissions. All sizes of diesel-powered school buses are eligible. The bus must operate on a regular, daily route to and from a school and have at least five years of useful life remaining.

Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis through November 30, 2012. While there is not a limit on the amount of funding that can be applied for, the amount award is at the discretion of the TCEQ. Download the Request for Grant Applications at www.TexasCleanSchoolBus.org and get your school's buses in line for these retrofits!
