From CT DEEP
Connecticut DEEP will be hosting an informational webinar on Thursday, Sept. 2, 2021, at 2 p.m. for the launch of a third round of funding under its Volkswagen NOx Mitigation Program. The program will have over $10 million set aside for grants. Highlights from the program include:
- 75% of the funding will be set aside for projects replacing diesel vehicle and equipment with electric vehicle (EV) equivalents. If there are not enough eligible EV proposals to utilize the full EV set-aside, the unexpended EV funds will be rolled over into a subsequent round of funding,
- 25% will be available for all other projects regardless of technology.
- 35% of the total will be dedicated to projects located in or benefiting Environmental Justice (EJ) Communities.
Please note: Application deadline is 4:00 pm on September 30, 2021.
