The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces an opportunity to apply for approximately $2.5 million in grants offered through the Electric Cargo Handling Grant Program (Program), one of the 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.

Other restrictions may apply. Public and private entities that own or operate eligible vehicles, engines or equipment throughout the State 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 Program guidelines and application instructions are available on the Department's Driving PA Forward webpage at www.depgis.state.pa.us/DrivingPAForward.
