(05/05/04) EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality has announced the availability of up to $1.5 million in funds to provide financial assistance to state, local, multi-state, and tribal agencies and non-profit organizations involved with transportation air quality issues. Funds are available for partnership projects that demonstrate the innovative use of EPA verified pollution control equipment in reducing emissions from diesel fleets affecting sensitive populations – such as children, the elderly and the chronically ill – who are more susceptible to the effects of diesel exhaust. Successfully demonstrating the effectiveness of these technologies can foster greater adoption of similar retrofit strategies as a means to improve air quality. For further details, visit: . The deadline for receipt of final applications is July 2.
