Grant Description
Grants to Texas organizations, businesses, government agencies, and individuals in eligible locations for projects and programs that help to reduce pollution and improve air quality by promoting the use of vehicles that utilize alternative fuels. Funding is intended to develop existing natural gas or alternative fueling facilities, and for building new alternative fuel stations in the Texas Clean Transportation Zone. Projects that are open to the public will be considered for funding before private facilities.

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). 

Eligible projects must include the construction or reconstruction of an alternative fueling facility. Reconstruction is defined as the expansion of a site to provide a new and different alternative fuel that does not exist at the site. Stations funded by AFFP grants must be new facilities or, at a minimum, provide new services.

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. For additional information about eligible project costs, see:

Eligible locations under the AFFP consist of the counties making up the Clean Transportation Zone, listed here:
