EPA Clean Diesel National Grants

EPA anticipates awarding approximately $40 million in competitive grant funding for the Diesel Emissions Reductions Act (DERA) Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program. The Program is soliciting applications nationwide for projects that achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions in terms of tons of pollution produced and exposure, particularly from fleets operating in areas designated by the Administrator as poor air quality areas.

Visit the EPA Clean Diesel National Grants page for more information.


Louisiana Alternative Fuel Vehicles and Fueling Infrastructure Tax Credit 

The state offers a nonrefundable income tax credit of 30% of the cost of converting a vehicle to operate on an alternative fuel and the cost of alternative fueling equipment. For new original equipment manufacturer AFVs, a taxpayer may take a tax credit of 10% of the cost of the motor vehicle, up to $2,500. To qualify for the tax credit, vehicles must be dedicated AFVs and registered in Louisiana. Commercial vehicles should primarily be used in Louisiana and operate for at least four years. For the purpose of this incentive, alternative fuels include natural gas, propane, non-ethanol based advanced biofuels (excluding flexible fuel vehicles), and electricity if the vehicle has at least four wheels, is primarily for on-street use, can attain a minimum speed of 55 miles per hour, has a minimum battery capacity of four kilowatt-hours, and can be charged externally. Restrictions may apply.
