More than $5.9 million in grant funds are available
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality announces that applications are now being accepted for the Texas Clean School Bus Program.
More than $5.9 million in grant funds are available to cover the cost of retrofitting diesel-powered school buses with emission-reduction devices. This will reduce children’s exposure to diesel exhaust, and will help keep the exhaust from polluting the air.
Eligible applicants must be public school districts or charter schools in the state of Texas that operate diesel-powered school buses on a daily route to and from schools.
Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis and must be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. on Nov. 1, 2016.
Grant application forms are available on the Texas Clean School Bus Program web page. Applications submitted using application forms from previous TCSB grant rounds will not be accepted.
