[Saturday, June 22, 2019]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces an opportunity to apply for $3 million in grants offered through the Electric Cargo Handling 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 large forklifts, airport ground support equipment and port cargo handling equipment.
The Department is seeking applications for projects that will replace or repower eligible large forklifts, airport ground support equipment and port cargo handling equipment with electric versions of the equipment. Other restrictions may apply. Public and private entities that own or operate eligible vehicles, engines or equipment throughout this Commonwealth should apply. These entities may include airports and port authorities, 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 performance period set forth in the applicable grant agreement. 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.
