The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is currently accepting applications for the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) TCSB. Approximately $6.2 million in grants is available state-wide for school districts, charter schools, and transportation systems provided by countywide school districts, to replace or retrofit school buses operating on a regular daily route to and from school.
Grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis to reimburse up to 80% of the cost to replace a school bus with a newer, cleaner model, and up to 100% of the cost to retrofit a school bus.
Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on December 17, 2020 or until all funding is awarded.
