Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Reduction Funding

The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) Diesel Bus and Vehicle Programs provide funding for heavy-duty on-road new diesel or alternative fuel vehicles or engine repowers and replacements, as well as off-road repowers and replacements. Both government and non-government entities that own and operate diesel fleets and equipment are eligible for funding. Vehicles and equipment that qualify for replacement or repower include:

  • Class 4-8 school buses, shuttle buses, and transit buses;
  • Class 4-8 local freight trucks, ferries, forklifts, and freight switchers; and
  • Class 8 local freight trucks and port drayage trucks.

This program is funded by North Carolina’s portion of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. For more information, including funding availability, see the DEQ Diesel Bus and Vehicle Programs website.
