The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is pleased to announce that $7.5 million is now available under Connecticut’s Diesel Emissions Mitigation Program for use by non-government and government entities towards projects to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from a wide array of mobile sources.

Funds for this second offering of the Diesel Emissions Mitigation Program will finance projects that replace or repower an array of aging diesel mobile sources and/or non-road equipment. Eligible source categories and funding allocations are specified in the State of Connecticut Beneficiary Mitigation Plan (the Plan) and limited by the Environmental Mitigation Trust Agreement for State Beneficiaries. Both non-government and government entities are eligible to apply, with each group being evaluated independently of each other. DEEP will ensure that projects ultimately funded by this program support the goals of the Plan. Submitted applications will be evaluated based on the funding criteria outlined in the Plan. After evaluation, applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals; and, following notification, awarded projects should be implemented. Upon successful completion of awarded projects, awardees will be reimbursed.

Applications are due no later than 4:00 PM EST on September 16, 2019. If you are interested in applying for funding under this program, please review important program information and download forms at www.ct.gov/deep/vw.
