The Nevada Diesel Emission Mitigation Fund, managed by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP), will start taking applications on June 1, 2018 for its first annual funding round to assist public and privately-owned fleets with the replacement of older diesel-powered medium and heavy truck vehicles (for example, transit buses, school buses, freight trucks, etc.) with new vehicles that emit fewer harmful exhaust emissions, in particular nitrogen oxides. This program will be an effective resource for fleets in Nevada working to improve air quality, and it will be instrumental in NDEP’s ongoing efforts to protect and enhance air quality throughout the state.
The NDEP has scheduled an additional workshop at the end of June in Reno to provide another opportunity for potential applicants to learn more about preparing and submitting their completed Nevada Diesel Emission Mitigation Fund applications. This workshop is being hosted by the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project. Registration for this event is required and can be completed by following this link: https://bit.ly/2MvgxJV
