Funds Still Available for Fuel Conversion Vehicles

Ohio EPA announces the award of $2.8 million in new Alternative Fuel Vehicle grants for 15 projects statewide. These grants will pay a portion of the costs of 141 new heavy duty alternative fuel vehicles, including 24 propane school buses, 2 compressed natural gas (CNG) school buses, 41 CNG transit buses, and 74 CNG refuse trucks. These grants are supported with state dollars from the Alternative Fuel Transportation Fund of the Ohio Developmental Services Agency.

Approximately $2.2 million is still available, and Ohio EPA will continue to accept and review applications in the order received until all available funds have been allocated. 

Eligible vehicles must have a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of at least 26,000 pounds, and be fueled by CNG, liquefied natural gas (LNG), or liquid petroleum gas, also referred to as propane or butane. Application information and the list of new grant recipients are posted on the AFV grant program website.
