Do you have an idea on how to utilize clean fuels in your fleet? Would you like to use innovative technologies to reduce emissions from your vehicles? Do you have a proposal to reduce the amount of miles driven by your organization? If so, the Clean Fuel Partnership would like to hear about it!
Funding Still Available for Public Fleets!
Through the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development’s Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) initiative, the Regional Planning Commission’s Clean Fuel Partnership has been awarded $909,200 in grant funding for a Clean Fuel Transition Fund for Public Fleets. This funding will help offset costs for public fleets to incorporate cleaner fuels and idle reduction technologies into their operations. Because of the geographic limitations of the CMAQ initiative, only fleets in Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard and St. Charles Parishes are eligible. Additional information on CMAQ can be found at: www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/air_quality/cmaq/.
