The Kentucky Division for Air Quality (DAQ) is offering $90,000 in competitive funding for projects that focus on reducing diesel emissions from non-road and on-road public and private diesel fleets.
These reductions of diesel emissions may be achieved through a number of strategies, including the installation of retrofit devices and idle reduction technologies on vehicles, engine repowers, and vehicle replacement. Eligible vehicles include non-road equipment; municipal vehicles; transit or school buses, marine engines; and locomotives.
Applicants located in poor air quality areas of the state and proposals that demonstrate the most cost-effective emission reduction strategies will be given priority in grant awards. The division is also prioritizing proposals for projects promoting the development of a Green Corridors program for interstate trucking and projects occurring within the non-road, non-construction sector.
The deadline to apply for funds is Nov. 15. To apply, visit the division’s website at http://air.ky.gov.
