LANSING, MICH. -- The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality recently issued a Request for Proposal in the amount of $380,000 for competitive grant funding to implement clean diesel projects. The Request for Proposal targets projects that reduce diesel emissions through the early replacement of diesel vehicles and equipment, and the implementation of idle reduction technology involving fuel operated heaters.

Funding for this grant opportunity comes from a state allocation of the federal Diesel Emissions Reduction Act and the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Diesel Program. Eligible applicants include local and regional government agencies, public school districts, private schools, port authorities, metropolitan planning organizations, private businesses, and non-profit organizations or institutions that promote transportation or air quality as their focus.

Proposals will require a 50 to 75 percent match, depending on the type of project. Proposals will be accepted through Jan. 31, 2018.
