Wisconsin DNR Offers Support of Projects That Reduce Diesel Emissions & Improve Air Quality & Human Health.

Sunday, November 14th, 2021 -- 9:43 AM

Through the Clean Diesel Grant Program, the Wisconsin DNR offers support for projects that reduce diesel emissions and improve Wisconsin’s air quality and human health. Application accpeted now through Jan. 7, 2022.

Approximately $320,000 is available to fund Wisconsin-based projects designed to reduce emissions from eligible public and private vehicle fleets with diesel engines. Funding is supported through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which began awarding clean diesel grants in 2008 under the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act, a grant program created by Congress as part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 to reduce emissions from aging diesel engines. The Diesel Emissions Reduction Act grant program helps improve Wisconsin’s air quality by reducing emissions that contribute to fine particulate, ozone and carbon monoxide levels. Visit the DNR’s Clean Diesel Grant Programs webpage for more information and to access grant application materials.

The deadline for submitting grant applications is 5 p.m. on Jan. 7, 2022. Eligible equipment and vehicles for funding include school and transit buses as well as nonroad engines, equipment and vehicles used in construction, cargo handling and agriculture. Eligible recipients include private, nonprofit and public entities that own or operate diesel fleets and equipment in Wisconsin.
