    Feedback Requested: Ability to Meet Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Buy America Requirements

    Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities (DFWCC) is seeking information on clean vehicle technologies that can comply with Buy America requirements set forth by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG)/DFWCC has a history of using FHWA Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) funding to facilitate a variety of “clean vehicle technology” projects – most projects have involved purchase of new, low-emitting vehicles to replace older vehicles. However, no commercially available vehicles meet FHWA definitions of Buy America compliance.  

    NCTCOG/DFWCC would like your help with any information on clean vehicle technologies that meet these requirements. For more information on how to submit feedback, click here for the full instructions (PDF) or visit their website at www.dfwcleancities.org. 

    All submissions will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on Friday June 26.
