DEQ offers millions for truck emissions program

 

Nearly $3.5 million is now available in Oklahoma under a program aimed at improving the environment through financing the repowering of trucks and buses in order to reduce harmful emissions.

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality announced the availability of funding from the Volkswagen Settlement Trust On-Road Program.

Approximately $3.5 million is available for a reimbursement program to replace or repower eligible on-road vehicles. The goal of this program is to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by replacing or repowering older vehicles with newer diesel or alternative fueled vehicles.

This is a competitive funding opportunity available to government and non-government applicants seeking to improve their heavy truck, medium truck, or bus fleets. A cost-share is required for funding under this program. School buses are not eligible for this funding.

Eligible vehicle classes:

  • Class 8 Local Freight Trucks and Port Drayage Trucks (Large Trucks)
  • Class 4-8 Shuttle Bus or Transit Bus (Buses)
  • Class 4-7 Local Freight Trucks (Medium Trucks)

Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2020. For an application or more information please visit https://www.deq.ok.gov/air-quality-division/volkswagen-settlement/on-road-program/ or email questions to: VWSettlement@deq.ok.gov.
