Reminder: 2020 DERA National Grants Applications Due Feb 26

EPA anticipates awarding approximately $44 million in competitive grant funding under the Diesel Emissions Reductions Act (DERA) National Grants Program. The program is soliciting applications nationwide for projects that achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions and exposure, particularly from fleets operating in areas designated by the Administrator as poor air quality areas.

EPA anticipates two to eight cooperative agreement awards per EPA region, subject to the availability of funds, the quality of applications received, and other considerations.
