Another Million In EPA Clean Diesel Grants
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced the recipients of 10 grants totaling more than $1 million to support clean diesel projects. EPA said the value of the grants will nearly triple to $3 million, as industry partners contribute almost two dollars for every dollar of federal funds. The grants will fund projects that reduce emissions from non-road sources.

($125,000); American Lung Association of Hawaii ($135,000); Idaho Department of Environmental Quality ($100,000); Maryland Department of the Environment ($50,000); Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs ($120,000); New York State Energy Research and Development Authority ($100,000); Oregon-Columbia Chapter of Associated General Contractors ($120,000); Pennsylvania Clean Air Council ($100,000); York (South Carolina) Technical College ($95,040); and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources ($100,000).
