Apply by Dec. 15 for Clean Diesel Grant Program funding

The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources is accepting applications for the 10th 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 replacement bus will be up to 25 percent of the purchase price of a 2017 engine model year or newer engine certified to EPA emission standards, 35 percent of the purchase price of a 2017 engine model year or newer engine certified to meet CARB’s Low-NOx Standards, or 45 percent of the purchase price of an all-electric bus. 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 is Dec. 15. Click here for more information about the program, or contact the DENR Air Quality office at 605-773-3151.
