Volkswagen Settlement Allocation

Archived: 07/27/2017

The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) is soliciting project proposals for the allocation of funds the state receives from the Volkswagen Mitigation Trust Agreement to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. LDEQ will give preference to projects proposed by public agencies that offer long-term benefits to the community and show a significant reduction in NOx, such as the replacement or repowering of publicly-owned school buses or aging state-owned heavy-equipment fleet vehicles with new cleaner vehicles and or new cleaner burning engines. Project proposals are due to LDEQ on July 27, 2017, by 4:30pm CT. For more information, including the proposal requirements and approval process, see the LDEQ Volkswagen Clean Air Act Civil Settlement press release.
