Clean School Bus Program
The Third Clean School Bus Program Report to Congress is now available!
The report covers fiscal year 2023 Program highlights.
EPA has announced the 2023 CSB Grant Program Awards!
Under this most recent funding opportunity, EPA is awarding nearly $1 billion to 280 school for electric and clean school buses – delivering cleaner air for communities across the country!
Electric Sector Pledge
Two national electric sector organizations have pledged to support school bus electrification!
With funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the EPA’s Clean School Bus (CSB) Program provides $5 billion over five years (FY 2022-2026) to replace existing school buses with zero-emission and low-emission models. Under the Program's multiple grant and rebate funding opportunities to date, the EPA has awarded almost $2 billion to fund approximately 5,000 school bus replacements at over 600 schools.
In Fall 2023, EPA opened the 2023 CSB Rebates program; EPA expects to award at least $500 million in funding under the 2023 rebate program.
EPA will continue to update this page with additional Clean School Bus Program funding information and educational resources. View the awards for 2023 Clean School Bus Grants and other past funding opportunities.
