Grants to Texas organizations, corporations, agencies, and individuals in eligible regions for projects to reduce pollution and improve air quality by promoting the use of vehicles that utilize alternative fuels. Funding is intended for developing existing natural gas or alternative fueling facilities, and for building new alternative fuel stations in the Texas Clean Transportation Zone.
Eligible alternative fuels for AFFP applications include: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), combined LNG and CNG, hydrogen, biodiesel, propane, electricity, and methanol (at least 85% by volume). Projects that are open to the public will be considered for funding before private facilities.
Stations funded by AFFP grants must be new facilities or, at a minimum, provide new services. Under the AFFP, TCEQ will give preference to stations:
Eligible activities are those that are directly related to the implementation of the project. AFFP grants are to be used to offset a portion of the cost of installation of the natural gas and alternative fuel-dispensing equipment. Applications that include design, engineering, and permitting costs for facility improvements directly related to installation of the equipment will be considered on a case-by-case basis, if the costs in the Equipment and/or Supplies and Materials categories alone will not expend the entire eligible grant amount.
Eligible locations under the AFFP consist of the 83 counties making up the Clean Transportation Zone, listed in Addendum 1: https://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/implementation/air/terp/ctt_affp/FY20_AFFP_582-20-10898_Addendum_1_Final.pdf#page=4
For detailed requirements for each project type, facilities, eligibility, and expenses, applicants should review the current AFFP Request for Grant Applications (RFGA) in Supporting Documents.
