The MN Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) released an RFP for a grant that reimburses 25% of the replacement cost (up to $40,000) per old diesel vehicle replaced with a new EPA-certified vehicle. The goal of this grant is to achieve significant reductions in emissions, fine particles, and greenhouse gases benefiting the entire state of Minnesota. It is also an effort by MPCA to reduce exposures to harmful air pollutants and maximize health benefits. There is a total of approximately $3.7 million available and forty percent of that will be dedicated to Greater Minnesota while the remaining funds will be dedicated to the seven-county Twin Cities area.
