SmartWay Finance Program
About the SmartWay Finance Program
The SmartWay Finance Program was established to award non-profit organizations and local governments competitive grants to establish national, regional, state, or local financing programs that provide financial incentives (e.g., low-cost loans, rebates, etc.) to vehicle/equipment owners for the purchase of eligible vehicle replacements, idle reduction technologies, and emission control retrofits.
In 2008, EPA awarded $3.4 million to three loan programs that help small trucking companies reduce fuel costs and emissions. Under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, EPA awarded $30 million to support the development of five financing programs for trucks, school buses and non-road vehicles/equipment. In 2009-2010, the SmartWay Finance Program awarded $13.5 million to support four truck financing programs.
Are you a vehicle/equipment owner interested in financing options for vehicle replacements, idle reduction technologies, and emission control retrofits?
Vehicle/equipment owners interested in applying for financing can contact the SmartWay Finance Program grantee recipients directly for financing options. Some states also have their own financing programs available.
