The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), Bureau of Air Quality, announces an opportunity to apply for grants under the Pennsylvania State Clean Diesel Grant Program (Program) to improve this Commonwealth's air quality. The Department is seeking applications to retrofit fleet diesel-powered transit buses.

Funding for projects is limited to counties in the central part of this Commonwealth that are considered nonattainment for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for fine particulate matter. These counties include: Berks, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York. Total funding available for projects is $235,200.
Funding is available to school districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, nonprofit entities, corporations, limited liability companies or partnerships incorporated or registered in this Commonwealth to retrofit diesel-powered transit buses with technologies certified or verified by the United States Environmental Protection Agency or the California Air Resources Board to lower diesel pollution. The technology may be a single technology or a combination of available technologies.
Project costs cannot be incurred before the grant period of performance.
