Clean School Bus is a public-private partnership that focuses on reducing children's exposure to harmful diesel exhaust by limiting school bus idling, implementing pollution reduction technologies, improving route logistics, and switching to clean fuels. Clean School Bus is part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) Program and provides funding for projects designed to retrofit and/or replace older diesel school buses. Eligible applicants are school districts, state and local government programs, federally recognized Indian tribes, and non-profit organizations. The rebate application period typically opens in the fall. For more information, see the Reducing Diesel Emissions from School Buses website.
