PTMA-MC Updates

08/02/2019 -- PA GRANTS NOW AVAILABLE TO SWITCH FROM DIESEL TO ALT-FUEL VEHICLES!

If you’re a business owner, government, or community organization in Pennsylvania and interested in cleaner transportation options, we have good news for you! Two more grant programs have opened to help you switch from older diesel engines to cleaner technologies. This makes a total of five funding programs currently open, with over $10 million available.

 

Older diesel engines generate over 25 percent of the oxides of nitrogen (NOx) pollution in Pennsylvania. Launched under the Wolf Administration, Driving PA Forward supports the permanent reduction of NOx emissions statewide. New engine technologies, such as electric, compressed natural gas (CNG), propane, and clean diesel, can significantly reduce pollutants from freight and delivery trucks, transit and school buses, and other mobile sources that rely on older diesel technology.

 

Funding comes from Pennsylvania’s share of a national settlement with Volkswagen Group of America for cheating on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions tests.
