2014 DERA Wisconsin Clean Diesel Grant Program

Please note: The 2014 DERA Wisconsin Clean Diesel Grant Program is focused only on school bus replacements due to limited funds and high demand for such projects.

The DNR is offering $125,000 under this grant program to reduce diesel emissions by replacing aging school buses from both public and private school bus fleets across the state. The program is funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA). Each fleet applicant may request up to $50,000 (excluding match dollars) for eligible school bus replacement projects.
