Grants to North Carolina public and private entities for emission-reducing projects. Applicants must request access to the online application portal prior to applying. Funding is intended for projects that help reduce diesel emissions from on-road and non-road vehicles and equipment. Grants can be used to repower equipment with cleaner-burning engines, convert vehicles to run on alternative fuels, and expand biodiesel storage and distribution equipment. All equipment funded must be EPA verified.
Eligible Vehicle, Engine, and Equipment Types
For alternative fuel conversions, systems for engine model years 2006 and earlier must achieve at least a 30% NOx reduction and a 10% PM reduction from the applicable certified emission standards of the original engine. Conversion systems for engine model years 2007 and newer must achieve at least a 20% NOx reduction with no increase in PM from the applicable certified emission standards of the original engine.
Estimated Total Program Funding:
Awarded projects are expected to begin in early 2023 and must be completed by September 30, 2023.
