The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday announced $20 million in grant funding for projects aimed at reducing pollution from diesel vehicles.
These grants, available through the Diesel Emission Reduction Program, enable owners of diesel vehicles to make investments to modernize their vehicles, EPA said.
States, tribes, local governments and non-profits are eligible to apply for the grants. The deadline for grant proposals is June 4.
Additional funds of about $9 million will be available through direct state allocations, EPA said.
