Electric School Bus Pilot
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) offers grants for the replacement of approximately six model year 1998-2009 diesel-powered school buses and required charging infrastructure. A total of $275,000, or 75% of the total project cost, is available for the purchase of an electric school bus with charging infrastructure. Eligible applicants include for-profit, non-profit, and public entities that own or operate school buses in Minnesota. This pilot program is funded by Minnesota's portion of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust.
