On April 25, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) opened a new funding opportunity that gives nearly $1 billion in grants to replace older non-emission heavy-duty vehicles with zero-emission (ZE) vehicles.

School buses are eligible for this grant under the School Bus Sub-Program.

In an effort to reduce harmful emissions, the grant is used to incentivize participation and accelerate the removal of older buses. The School Bus Sub-Program is expected to receive about 70 percent of the funds.

Washington State, municipalities, tribes, and nonprofit school transportation associations are eligible to apply.
