Photo of school bus Apply by Dec. 16 for Clean Diesel Grant Program funding

The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources will be accepting applications for the ninth round of funding under the South Dakota Clean Diesel Grant Program. The program provides rebates to assist schools in purchasing new public school buses to replace old, high-emitting diesel school buses. The primary goal of the program is to reduce students’ exposure to both fine particulate and smog-forming pollution.

Total rebate per school district for a replacement bus will be up to 25 percent of replacement cost. Districts that have not received a replacement bus in previous rounds will have preference. DENR intends to award funds to as many eligible applicants throughout the state as possible.

The application deadline for round nine is Dec. 16. Click here for more information about the program, or contact the DENR Air Quality office at (605) 773-3151.
