CLEAN DIESEL GRANT PROGRAM 04/2009-09/2012

The previous South Dakota Clean Diesel Grant Program was funded by two sources.  Approximately $1.7million was awarded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Stimulus Projects) and approximately $850,000 was awarded under EPA's State Clean Diesel Grant Program (DERA Projects) from 2009-2012. The Program provided funds that assisted in the purchase of new public school buses to replace old, high-emitting public school buses, and to equip in-use diesel school buses with exhaust control retrofit devices that significantly reduce toxic soot emissions. The primary goal of the Program was to reduce your school children’s exposure to both fine particulate and smog-forming pollution.  SD DENR provided the grant funding and administered the Program.
