Awarded Clean School Bus Program Rebates
On this page:
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law of 2021 authorizes EPA to offer rebates to replace existing school buses with clean and zero-emission (ZE) models to reduce harmful emissions from older, dirtier buses. EPA announced on September 29, 2022 it would nearly double the funding awarded for clean school buses this year following high demand from school districts across the United States that applied for the 2022 Clean School Bus (CSB) Rebates. This is the first round of funding from the EPA Clean School Bus Program, which President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law created with a historic $5 billion investment for low- and zero-emission school buses over the next five years. The rebate application period closed in August with an outstanding response from school districts seeking to purchase electric and low-emission school buses across the country. EPA received around 2,000 applications requesting nearly $4 billion for over 12,000 buses. The applicant pool includes submissions from all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and federally recognized Tribes. The 2022 rebate program will fund approximately 2,500 school bus replacements.
The interactive map and table below highlights rebate awards by school district for the 2022 rebates. Be advised, these are maximum funding amounts. The amount of funding that will be disbursed after a school district submits their Payment Request Form may be lower than these maximum amounts because the funds to be disbursed are based on actual bus and charging infrastructure costs, as supported by purchase orders.
Note: The information in the map and table provides a snapshot of awards and is updated regularly. This information is not official notification of rebate awards. Applicants are notified of selection via email from firstname.lastname@example.org and must refer to that email notification for their official award details.

The document linked to below displays the applicants for EPA’s 2022 CSB Rebates that were not selected for funding in the initial lottery process. If any 2022 CSB Rebate selectees are deemed ineligible, drop out of the program, or otherwise reduce their funding request, then EPA will offer their leftover funds to previously unselected applicants provided sufficient time remains in the project period.
