EPA Calls for Clean Air Solutions for Tribal Fleets

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Transportation and Air Quality is soliciting proposals to reduce diesel emissions, including those produced by school buses, for tribal governments and native villages.

This EPA funding opportunity should achieve significant reductions in pollution created by emissions from diesel engines, particularly fleets located in areas with poor air quality.

Eligible entities have jurisdiction over transportation or air quality. According to the EPA, the emission reduction solutions should contain verified emission control technologies, such as exhaust controls, cleaner fuels or engine upgrades.

Proposals can be submitted between June 14 and Aug. 23. For more information on eligibility and application requirements, like the 2016 Tribal Request for Proposals (RFP), visit:
