The TCEQ offers grants for natural gas vehicle conversions and purchases

Up to $37.8 million available for qualifying entities

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality announced today that applications are now being accepted for the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program to improve air quality. Grants are available in one or more of the counties listed under the Clean Transportation Triangle (CTT) program, to include nonattainment areas, affected counties, and other counties inside the triangle area.

Projects eligible for funding under this program must result in at least a 25 percent reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOX) emissions—which combine with other constituents and sunlight to form ozone. Vehicles funded under the TNGVGP must be operated in one or more of the eligible counties by the grantee at least 75 percent of the time.

These Texas Emissions Reduction Plan grants provide up to $37.8 million to entities that own and operate heavy-duty or medium-duty motor vehicles to replace vehicles with a natural gas vehicle or repower the vehicles with a natural gas engine. Grant applicants must go through a participating dealer under contract with the TCEQ in order to apply. An updated list of participating dealers and eligible counties is available on the TERP website.

Applications will be accepted up to May 26, 2017, at 5:00 p.m., or until all funding has been awarded, whichever occurs earlier.

For additional up-to-date information on the grant application process, eligibility requirements, and copies of the application forms for the TNGVGP, visit the TERP website,www.terpgrants.org or call 800-919-TERP (8377).
