The North Carolina Division of Air Quality is now accepting proposals to fund clean diesel projects. More than $694,000 is available for eligible projects through the Mobile Source Diesel Emission Reduction Grant program, according to a press release. Grants can be used to cover a wide range of projects, including repowering non-road construction or agricultural equipment with cleaner burning engines, converting vehicles to run on alternative fuels and repowering a locomotive.
Individuals, businesses and organizations from the public and private sector are eligible to apply. The division will prioritize funding for non-road equipment projects, according to the press release, but proposals for on-road and locomotive projects will be considered if funding is available.
Applications must be received by email by 5 p.m. November 2, 2018 to be considered.
