Dear Clean Diesel Stakeholder,

EPA’s Construction Rebate Program has opened!  Please see the following links for info about the construction rebate program. The application period will be open November 20 through January 15 and applicants will be chosen by lottery.

Eligible applicants for this funding opportunity include regional, state, local or tribal agencies or port authorities with jurisdiction over transportation or air quality.  Private entities that operate nonroad construction equipment under a contract or lease with a public entity are also eligible to apply.  Applicants must operate their equipment in areas of poor air quality, and a full list of eligible counties is at: http://epa.gov/cleandiesel/documents/2013-construction-county-list.pdf.  Eligible applicants who meet the location requirement may apply to install Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) on Tier 2 or Tier 3 engines, or they may apply to replace unregulated or Tier 1 engines with Tier 2 or Tier 3 engines.  Applicants may submit one application that includes up to five engines.  These five engines can be any combination of the technology options for a total maximum of $120,000 in rebate funding per applicant.
