The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is providing approximately $8 million in grant funding for diesel equipment owners to replace older and more polluting diesel engines with new, cleaner technologies and exhaust control retrofits. The program is designed to help address health and environmental impacts from diesel emissions in Oregon.
Business, government and tribal diesel equipment owners across the state are invited to apply for funding for projects that reduce diesel emissions in Oregon. Visit the DEQ Diesel Emissions Mitigation Grants program web page to:
- Learn about eligible diesel projects
- Register on DEQ’s grant web portal
- Apply for funding using the Diesel Emissions Reduction Grant User Guide
Owners of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles requiring retrofits under the new Diesel Retrofit Compliance Program may also apply for funding to support the installation of diesel particulate filters.
The 2022 application is the only opportunity this year to apply for a Diesel Emissions Mitigation Grant. Grant award recipients can apply for additional funds in subsequent years.
Submissions must be received by DEQ no later than 5 p.m. (PDT) on June 7, 2022.
