VW TRUCK PROGRAM

 

 

DENR Announces Rounds Four and Five of the VW Truck Program

The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) announces Rounds Four and Five of the VW truck program. During Rounds Four and Five there will be approximately $900,000 of Volkswagen trust funds available for replacing trucks.

The program provides rebates to assist state and local governmental agencies in purchasing new Class 4-8 local freight trucks to replace old, high-emitting diesel trucks. The primary goal of South Dakota’s VW Environmental Mitigation Trust Program is to facilitate the improvement and protection of the ambient air quality throughout South Dakota.

Total rebate per replacement truck will be up to 50% of the purchase price of a new truck with an engine certified to EPA emission standards, 60% of the purchase price of a new truck with an engine certified to meet CARB’s Low-NOx standards, or 70% of the purchase price of an all-electric truck. DENR intends to award funds to as many eligible applicants throughout the state as possible.
