Grants offered for cleaner air

The North Central Texas Council of Governments has approximately $5 million in grant money to fund air quality projects aimed at reducing emissions of nitrogen oxides (Nox) from internal combustion engines in the North Central region.
The North Texas Emissions Reduction Grant Program Call for Projects will fund the incremental cost of eligible engine retrofit, engine repower, vehicle/equipment replacement, and new vehicle/equipment lease or purchase projects for on-road vehicles, non-road equipment, stationary engines, and other TERP-eligible projects. Both public and private sector entities are encouraged to apply.
All projects must exhibit a 25 percent reduction in NOx emissions and must be at or below $5,500 per ton of NOx reduced. Proposals will be scored and selected in one-week intervals until all funds are fully awarded. Implementation of projects selected under this program must be completed by May 31, 2007.
To learn more, visist www.nctcog.org/NTERG or call 817-608-2354.
