Bay Area Getting $140 Million for Cleaner Freight Transport
The program, a collaboration between the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and Air Resources Board, is accepting applications for grants until August 15.
Grants are given to fund retrofits or replacements of engines and purchases of new equipment that reduce diesel emissions in advance of regulatory requirements.
The Air Resources Board will provide $140 million in bond funding for the program over the next four years.
