[Saturday, June 15, 2019]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces an opportunity to apply for $3 million in grants offered through the Ocean-Going Vessel Shorepower Grant Program (Grant Program), one of the new programs under the Driving PA Forward Initiative. This funding is available for eligible diesel emission reduction projects that will improve air quality and protect public health and the environment by reducing emissions from ocean-going vessels in port.
The Department is seeking applications for projects that will install eligible marine shorepower systems at eligible port locations in this Commonwealth. The marine shorepower system must comply with international shore power design standards (ISO/IEC/IEEE 80005-1-2012 High Voltage Shore Connection Systems or the IEC/PAS 80005-3:2014 Low Voltage Shore Connection Systems). Other restrictions may apply. Public and private entities that own or operate eligible project locations throughout this Commonwealth should apply. These entities may include school districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, State agencies, nonprofit entities, corporations, limited liability companies or partnerships incorporated or registered in this Commonwealth, air quality or transportation organizations, and metropolitan or rural planning organizations.
The Department will not reimburse grant recipients for project costs incurred prior to the grant perform- ance period set forth in the applicable grant agree- ment. The Grant Program guidelines and application instructions are available on the Department's Driving PA Forward webpage at http://www.depgis.state.pa.us/DrivingPAForward/ or by contacting the Bureau of Air Quality at firstname.lastname@example.org or (717) 787-9495.
A webinar on the Grant Program will be held on Monday, July 1, 2019, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. See the Department's previously listed webpage to register.
