Fleets that register and operate medium- and heavy-duty vehicles in the state of Pennsylvania can now take advantage of the second round of a key grant initiative, announced over the weekend.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is administering these Act 13 Natural Gas Vehicle grants, and about $11 million will be issued through this funding round. The grants are financed through the impact fees that natural gas companies pay to the state.


The grants are designed specifically to help fleets defray the cost of acquiring a new NGV or performing an NGV conversion. Money is available for vehicles with a GVWR exceeding 14,000 lbs., and the awards are capped at $25,000 per vehicle (no more than 50% of the conversion cost or incremental cost of an OEM NGV).

Half of this funding round is being funneled exclusively to local transportation organizations, such as nonprofit public transportation agencies, port and redevelopment authorities, and school districts. The other 50% of the funding will be available to all other entities, including nonprofit organizations, private companies, state universities and municipalities.

Grant requests can be no more than 50 percent of the incremental purchase or retrofit cost per vehicle, with a maximum of $25,000 per vehicle.

Applications are due by 4 p.m. Eastern on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014. There will be a special webinar on Wednesday, Nov. 20, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. for interested parties to learn more about the grant solicitation.
