Financial assistance is available to local, state, and federal government entities; public transportation providers; private and non-profit organizations; and higher education institutions for research, demonstration, and deployment projects involving low or zero emission public transportation vehicles. Funding opportunities include the Public Transportation Innovation Program and the Low or No Emission (Low-No) Vehicle Program. Eligible vehicles must be designated for public transportation use and significantly reduce energy consumption or harmful emissions compared to a comparable standard vehicle. Funding is available through fiscal year 2020 (verified December 2020), but is subject to congressional appropriations thereafter. For more information, see the FAST Act Section 5312 fact sheet and the MAP-21 website. (Reference Public Law 113-159, Public Law 114-94, 49 U.S. Code 5312, and 49 U.S. Code 5339(c))
