Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Grants
The Texas General Land Office administers the NGV Initiative Grant Program to encourage public-sector fleets in certain counties to increase their use of heavy-duty NGVs. Private fleets also may be eligible particularly those that operate directly under contract for government work or do other government business. The program is funded with a Texas Emissions Reduction Plan grant through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. A variety of vehicles, including street sweepers, forklifts, buses, and garbage trucks, are eligible for grants to help cover the cost of replacing diesel vehicles with NGVs. The program ends August 31, 2012.
