Air Quality Funding Opportunities
DEQ manages several programs that provide opportunities for funding that apply to various entities. The Clean Diesel (DERA) program has been a recurring program for many years and often focuses on clean school bus replacements. DEQ also administers programs through the Volkswagen Settlement Fund. The Alternative Fuel School Bus program and ChargeOK (Oklahoma Electric Vehicle Grant Program) have a similar goal to promote alternatively-fueled vehicle use throughout the State of Oklahoma in order to reduce emissions and promote healthy air quality. The On-Road Program is designed to replace older trucks and transit buses with cleaner models.
