Grants to South Dakota public school districts for the replacement of old, high-emissions buses. Rebates will provide up to 25% of the bus replacement costs, with preference given to older buses. The main goal of this program is to reduce students’ exposure to smog and particulate pollution.


School districts should receive the new bus by August 31, 2017.

Eligibility for the Program includes any SD public school district that directly provides transportation services for SD public schools.

Preference will be given to any SD public school district that has not received a replacement bus in a previous round.

Note: Funds cannot be used for replacements that would have occurred through normal attrition/fleet turnover within three years of the project start date. Bus purchases must not occur before school districts execute an agreement with DENR.
