Pennsylvania state officials announced a number of Alternative Fuel Incentive Grant (AFIG) awardees this week, with nearly three dozen fleets receiving funds to support a variety of alt-fuel vehicle initiatives.
This year, the annual AFIG program focused mainly on providing grants for the conversion or purchase of light- and medium-duty natural gas vehicles and propane vehicles – more than 500, in total – as well as a number of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles. Awardees included local governments, nonprofits and private companies.
