If you know of an entity that has demonstrated significant leadership in achieving diesel emission reductions during the past year, please nominate them for the SEDC Leadership Award. Nominations are due by May 15, 2019 and will be announced at the SEDC Annual Partnership Meeting in September 2019.
EPA anticipates awarding approximately $40 million in competitive grant funding for the Diesel Emissions Reductions Act (DERA) Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program. The Program is soliciting applications nationwide for projects that achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions in terms of tons of pollution produced and exposure. Application packages must be submitted electronically to EPA through Grants.gov (www.grants.gov) no later than Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. (ET) to be considered for funding.
The SEDC is part of EPA’s National Clean Diesel Campaign, a program combining regulatory measures with voluntary initiatives to reduce the pollution emitted from diesel engines across the country.
