Clean Diesel State Allocations

On this page​:

Background

EPA allocates DERA funds to eligible U.S. states and territories for the establishment of clean diesel grant, rebate and loan programs.

Using the formula outlined in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (PDF)(551 pp, 3.16 MB, About PDF, August 2005), the State Clean Diesel Grant Program receives 30 percent of the annual DERA appropriation. 

Of the state portion of the funding, two-thirds is provided to participating states and territories as base funding. The remaining third is allocated as an incentive to those states and territories that voluntarily provide a match equal to the base funding.

Note: States intending to use Volkswagen mitigation funds for the DERA Option in the VW partial settlement should review the DERA Option Factsheet (PDF)(7 pp, 700 K, April 2017, About PDF).
