The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is pleased to announce the availability of $566,018 of grant money towards reducing diesel emissions in the state. A reduction in diesel emissions will help Oklahoma achieve and maintain health-based air pollution standards and reduce risk from toxic air pollutants.
DEQ has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2017 Oklahoma Clean Diesel Grant Program. Since 2008, DEQ has distributed over $4.8 million for the replacement, repower, and retrofitting of school buses across the state through this EPA-sponsored program. While the primary focus of the 2017 program is the replacement of school buses, other replacement and idle reduction technology projects will be considered. A full description of eligible projects can be found in the RFP.
Applications are due January 19, 2018. Potential grantees can download the RFP and application by visiting http://www.deq.state.ok.us/AQDNew/cleandiesel/index.html.
