NDEP among first in nation to award grants for air quality using VW Settlement funds

CARSON CITY, NV – The Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ (NDCNR) Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) has identified 12 projects to fund in the first annual funding cycle of its Diesel Emission Mitigation Fund (DEMF). These projects will significantly reduce the release of harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) into Nevada’s air from on-road and non-road diesel-powered vehicles and equipment. With $6.6 million from the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust, NDEP will leverage more than $9.4 million in funding from project partners to mitigate excess NOx emissions associated with Volkswagen’s 2.0 and 3.0L diesel-powered cars, and efficiently and cost-effectively reduce NOx emissions from areas of Nevada that bear a disproportionate share of NOx pollution and other pollutants.
