Latest EPA National DERA Grants Application Process Set to Begin

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced the upcoming availability of about $44 million in national grants provided by the Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA).

The EPA said on Monday that the application process will open on Dec. 9.

Approximately 40 to 60 awards are expected to be made to eligible applicants.

The DERA grants help support projects that reduce emissions from older diesel engines, including school buses.

The EPA is hosting informational webinars on Dec. 11, Dec. 18 and Jan. 14 to provide program details, plus highlight eligible projects, vehicles, engines and equipment.
