DERA National Funding Assistance Program

FY 2015 Request for Proposals (RFP) – Coming Soon

EPA is preparing for the release of the FY15 National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program RFP in the spring of 2015, and anticipates that approximately $12-14 million will be offered under this funding opportunity. Priority will be given to proposals which demonstrate, among other factors:

  • Diesel emission reductions from engines involved in goods movement;
  • Diesel emission reductions in areas of poor air quality;
  • Project outcomes that benefit the community; and
  • Community engagement and partnerships in the development and implementation of the project.

Eligible entities include regional, state, local or tribal agencies (or intertribal consortia) or port authorities with jurisdiction over transportation or air quality, and nonprofit organizations or institutions that: a) represent or provide pollution reduction or educational services to persons or organizations that own or operate diesel fleets or b) have, as their principal purpose, the promotion of transportation or air quality.

The 2014 grant recipients have been announced.
