2022-2023 Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) National Grants

Friday, August 4, 2023 / CALSTART Membership

The EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality is soliciting applications nationwide for projects that achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions. Priority for funding will also be given to projects that engage and benefit local communities already overburdened by air pollution, protect grant funded investments from severe weather events caused by climate change, and applicants that demonstrate their ability to promote and continue efforts to reduce emissions after the project has ended. The EPA anticipates awarding approximately $115 million under this NOFO. Awards will be selected and managed by the EPA’s ten regional offices. The EPA anticipates 4-10 cooperative agreements awards per EPA region, subject to the availability of funds, the quality of applications received, and other considerations.
