Truck Emissions Reduction Study and Grant at Port Facilities

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Truck Emissions at Port Facilities (RTEPF) Grant Program provides funding to test, evaluate, and deploy projects that reduce port-related emissions from idling trucks. Eligible projects include port electrification and efficiency improvements, focusing on heavy-duty commercial vehicles, and other related projects. Grant funding is available for up to 80% of eligible project cost. Awards will be treated as Federal-aid Highway Program projects. Additional funding eligibility and considerations apply.

Eligible applicants for RTEPF funds include entities that have authority over, operate, or utilize port facilities or intermodal port transfer facilities; have authority over areas within or adjacent to ports and intermodal port transfer facilities; or test or evaluate technologies that reduce truck emissions at port facilities or intermodal port transfer facilities.
