Idle Reduction Technology Grant Program
The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) administers the Maryland Idle Reduction Technology Grant Program, which provides grants to motor carriers for the purchase and installation of qualified idle reduction technology on on-highway class 6 to class 8 trucks registered in Maryland. Leased vehicles are also eligible. Idle reduction technologies must be verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or California Air Resources Board (CARB). Awards are limited to 50% of the installed cost, up to $3,500. A single motor carrier may receive up to 10 grants. MEA must receive grant applications by September 1, 2014. Funding is currently not available for this program (verified April 2015).
