DEP Announces $3 Million In Grants For Cleaner Truck, Bus Fleets Under The Driving PA Forward Grant Program

PA Environment Daily

Conversions to clean diesel trucks and buses reduce large amounts of nitrogen oxide pollution from these vehicles, leading to less fine particulate matter and ozone formation. On September 29, the Department of Environmental Protection announced $3 million in funding through the Driving PA Forward - Truck & Bus Fleet Grant Program (formerly the Class 8 Truck and Transit Bus Grant Program).
