San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (APCD)
Grants to California school districts to improve the environment in eligible regions. Funding is intended to reduce toxic air contaminants and exposure to pollution by replacing school transportation vehicles. Funding is intended to reduce emissions from public school vehicles by switching to new, low-emitting buses. Priority will be given to alternative fuel buses including electricity. The school district and its school buses shall be based and operate within the geographic boundaries of San Luis Obispo County.
While diesel-fueled buses are primarily targeted for replacement, gasoline-fueled buses that do not include an original-equipment catalytic converter are also eligible. Existing school buses to be replaced must be dismantled within 60 days of receipt of the new bus.
GrantWatch ID#: 136935
School bus projects are typically eligible for 100% funding; however, awards are limited by availability of funds and the following state funding caps:
- $165,000 for diesel-powered replacement buses;
- $220,000 for optional low-NOx (CNG) or hybrid powered replacements.
The term of the Grant Agreement will be at least three (3) years from the date that the new school bus is put into service, and will require the applicant to perform record keeping and reporting.
