Grants available for Diesel Emission Reductions

Information Session Set for Oct. 8, 2015

 Ohio EPA today released new guidelines for the latest round of Diesel Emission Reduction Grants (DERG) that will help improve air quality through vehicle replacement, repowering engines, retrofitting emission controls or installing anti-idle equipment.

DERG programs allow states to allocate federal money to organizations that are updating diesel fleets with better emissions controls.

Ohio has up to $15 million to distribute to successful grantees; grants of between $50,000 and $1 million will be awarded.

Applications must be submitted no later than Dec. 1, 2015, and must detail how the applicant will pay for at least 20 percent of the project. This cycle, $5 million will be allocated to public transit projects, in keeping with statewide needs identified by the Ohio Department of Transportation. Private sector diesel fleets may apply through a public sector sponsor (forming a Public Private Partnership).

An information session for interested applicants will be held at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015, at the Ohio Department of Transportation headquarters, 1980 W. Broad St., Columbus.

In addition, two conference calls will be scheduled in October and November to answer applicantsÂ’ questions. Questions and answers from these sessions will be posted on the DERG program website. To receive information about how to participate in the conference calls and updates about the DERG process, send contact information to [email protected].

Conference call participation specifics and additional information will be available on the DERG web page at http://epa.ohio.gov/oee/EnvironmentalEducation.aspx under the Diesel Emission Reduction Grants tab.
