The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says it is now accepting applications from public and private school bus fleets for its National Clean Diesel Rebate program.
In order to reduce emissions, the fleet owners are eligible to apply for rebates for the replacement of school buses with engine model years of 2006 or older. As part of the 2014 School Bus Replacement Funding Opportunity, the EPA is offering approximately $3 million in rebate funding.
The EPA is accepting applications until Nov. 17. Applicants may submit one application for up to five buses.
