FY09 Grants Information

2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act State Allocation Summary

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides $88 million in new funding to support clean diesel grant and loan programs administered by states and the District of Columbia. These programs are designed to achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions and maximize job creation and preservation. This program is referred to as the Recovery Act Funding for the State Clean Diesel Grant Program. All 50 states and the District of Columbia were eligible to participate, and all of them have applied for the funding. Each applicant will receive approximately $1.7 million dollars to apply toward clean diesel activities in their state. Below are summaries of what each state intends to do with the funds, and web links to each state’s program:

The types of projects that are expected to be part of this grant program include the installation of diesel oxidation catalysts, closed crankcase ventilation systems, particulate matter filters, the purchase of diesel hybrid vehicles, engine repowers, and equipment to reduce or eliminate idling (such as direct-fired heaters and auxiliary power units). There will be a focus on school districts, local governments, businesses, and truck owners/operators to assist them in reducing diesel emissions.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s DieselWise Indiana program will administer a statewide clean diesel grant program with an emphasis on areas currently in nonattainment or maintenance of either ozone or fine particle National Ambient Air Quality Standards, as well as areas in need of economic recovery. Funded projects are expected to include a variety of aftermarket technologies, including, but not limited to, diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters, closed crankcase filtration systems, idle reduction technologies (applied to onroad and nonroad diesel engines), and technologies to improve the fuel efficiency of diesel locomotives.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality proposes to solicit applications for clean diesel projects through a Request For Projects. Funded projects are expected to include retrofit technologies, engine upgrades, certified engine repowers, and certified vehicle and equipment replacement activities. Preference for funding will be given to projects located in nonattainment or marginal attainment for particulate matter, or areas where health disparities exist and there is opportunity to provide an increased public health benefit.

The work of Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Recovery Act Funding for the State Clean Diesel Grant Program will directly address diesel emissions across the state, while also helping to maintain and/or create jobs in the manufacturing and trucking industry. MPCA will establish a grant program that will fund a wide range of diesel emission reduction projects in the state. Projects are expected to include a variety of EPA and CARB verified technologies and certified engine configurations. Projects are expected to be funded throughout the state.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency will use the State Clean Diesel Grant Program stimulus monies to directly reduce diesel emissions through the retrofit of approximately 350-400 school buses. ARRA funds will be used to augment the existing Ohio Clean Diesel School Bus Fund, to provide sub-grants of $5,000 to approximately $300,000 to public school districts in Ohio to purchase and install diesel emission control equipment from the US EPA or CARB verified technology lists. Priority will be given to applicants in particulate matter nonattainment counties, and those with anti-idling or other pollution reduction programs in place.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will issue sub-grants to owners of all types of diesel powered equipment (including commercial trucks, transit and school buses, construction, marine and airport equipment, stationary engines, and more) for implementing emission control projects within their fleets. Public and private Wisconsin-based fleets of any size will be eligible for up to $100,000 in funding. Eligible projects and required match (applicant match percentage) include: EPA or CARB verified exhaust retrofit devices (0%), idle reduction systems (50%), emission upgrades (0%), engine repowers (25%), and/or vehicle replacements (75%).
