Oklahoma Clean Diesel


Oklahoma Clean Diesel School Bus Program

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality has been allocated $1.73 million in additional funding for the Oklahoma Clean Diesel School Bus Program through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). The funds will be used for the replacement, repower and/or retrofit of school buses in the smaller school districts in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa metropolitan areas. Specifically, the grant funds will assist schools in the purchase of one or more of the following: new 2007 or 2010 emission standard diesel school buses, 2007 or 2010 emission standard diesel engine repower and/or the purchase and installation of EPA or California Air Resources Board (CARB) verified crankcase ventilation systems, diesel oxidation catalysts and/or diesel particulate filters. No matching funds are required for retrofits but are required for replacements and repowers.

School districts meeting selection criteria will be awarded funds on a first come, first served basis on an accelerated application/award schedule in order to maximize impact to the nation's economy. Applications will be accepted until all funds are awarded, but all monies must be spent by September 2010. The Grant Announcement, Appendix A and Application are now posted. Interested school districts should contact Leon Ashford at 405. 702. 4100.
