[51 Pa.B. 4031]
[Saturday, July 24, 2021]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces an opportunity to apply for $6 million in rebates offered through the Onroad Rebate Program (Program), one of the programs under the Driving PA Forward Initiative. This funding is available for diesel vehicle replacement and repower projects that will improve air quality and protect public health and the environment by reducing emissions from older diesel vehicles.
The Department is seeking applications for projects that will replace or repower eligible diesel-powered Class 4—8 trucks, school buses, shuttle buses or transit buses. The new vehicles or engines may be powered by clean diesel, electric, natural gas, propane or other alternative fuels. Eligible applicants include school districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, other 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 rebate recipients for project costs incurred prior to the date of the rebate application, unless otherwise noted.
The Program guidelines and application instructions are available on the Department's Driving PA Forward webpage at www.depgis.state.pa.us/DrivingPAForward/ or by contacting the Bureau of Air Quality (Bureau) at firstname.lastname@example.org or (717) 787-9495.
A recorded presentation providing an overview of the Program and application process will be available on the Department's Driving PA Forward web site during the application period. Applicants can contact the Bureau at email@example.com or (717) 787-9495 with questions or to request clarification about the presentation or Program documents.
Applications must be submitted online through the Commonwealth's Electronic Single Application web site, eGrants, at www.esa.dced.state.pa.us/Login.aspx. The application period for this round of funding is now open. The Department will close the application period following the issuance of $6 million in vouchers, or at 4 p.m. on November 12, 2021, whichever occurs first. The Department will accept, review and approve completed applications for rebates on a first-come, first-served basis.
