CLEAN DIESEL GRANT PROGRAM 10/2014-09/2017

For the 10/2014-09/2017 grant period, $383,024 was awarded under EPA's State Clean Diesel Grant Program (DERA Projects). 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.
