Alternative Fuel School Bus Program

< back to Volkswagen Settlement

DEQ is currently managing projects that reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from diesel vehicles and promote the use of alternative fuels in school buses for pre-Kindergarten through grade 12. Alternative fuels include all-electric, propane (LPG), and natural gas (LNG or CNG). $4,184,000 from the Volkswagen State Environmental Trust is available for this program.

For FY (fall) 2021, alternative fuel school bus projects will be accepted only through the Clean Diesel (DERA) program instead of as a separate program.
