Current Grant Opportunities

We’re looking for partners to apply for Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) grants through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA offers DERA grant funding for projects that significantly reduce diesel emissions, especially in areas with poor air quality.

Application Process

Please complete the applicable pre-screening grant application(s) below:

All applications are due by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22, 2018. Please submit applications by email to Diesel Solutions.

We will notify all applications of the project selected for our DERA Grant application on May 30, 2018.

All proposals will be kept on file for grant opportunities that arise within the next six months. 


Other Grant Opportunities

Advanced Vehicle Technologies Research
The U.S. Department of Energy's Vehicle Technologies Office will award up to $5 million for research projects that address priorities in batteries and electrification, energy-efficient commercial off-road vehicle technologies, and fuel technologies to improve fuel economy, among others. 

Concept papers are due May 29, 2018. To learn more, visit the Department of Energy's website


Clean Diesel State Grants
The Washington State Department of Ecology has $500,000 available in funding for public or private entities with diesel vehicles or equipment operating in Washington. Eligible projects include idle reduction projects, scrapping older heavy-duty vehicles, and shore power systems for marine harbor vessels.

Diesel pollution is responsible for 70 percent of the state's cancer risk from airborne pollutants.

Applications are due June 7, 2018. To learn more, visit Ecology's website.


Clean Diesel National Grants
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will award $40 million in Diesel Emissions Reductions Act (DERA) funding this year. EPA's Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington) will accept proposals requesting up to $900,000 in grant funds.

The DERA Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program is intended to fund projects that significantly reduce diesel emissions and exposure, especially in areas with poor air quality.

Proposals are due June 12, 2018. To learn more, visit the EPA's website.


Advanced Transportation Technologies Grants
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is making $60 million available in grants to states, cities and other public agencies for new technologies that improve transportation efficiency and safety.

The FHWA is particularly interested in projects that bring data together from different systems, such as real-time traveler information, traffic data collection, integrated corridor management, and other intelligent transportation system technologies.

Applications are due June 18, 2018. To learn more, visit the FHWA's website.
