Clean Fuels and Vehicle Technology Grant and Loan Program Open Application Period
The Utah Division of Air Quality (DAQ), an agency of the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, is soliciting proposals from businesses, non-profits, and local government entities for projects that can benefit from funds provided by the Utah Clean Fuels and Vehicle Technology Grant and Loan Program (CFV Program).
As the government entity for air quality regulation for the State of Utah, DAQ is interested in providing additional tools and opportunities to private businesses, non-profits, and government entities to develop and implement strategies that reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality. One of these opportunities is the CFV Program.
The CFV Program, funded through the Clean Fuels and Vehicle Technology Fund, provides:
- Grants and loans for the purchase, conversion, or retrofit of clean fuel vehicles;
- Loans and state-matching grants for the purchase of clean fuel refueling equipment.
A combined total of $250,000 in grants and $250,000 in loans may be awarded. The maximum amount that may be approved is $100,000 for a grant and $100,000 for a loan with a minimum of $5,000 per project.
DAQ will begin accepting applications for the 2013-14 CFV Program on October 15, 2013. Applications will be due by 5:00 p.m. on December 12, 2013. A guidance document is available to assist applicants with completing the application.
