Air District offers $2M for innovative projects to reduce vehicle emissions
Submitted By Jennifer Jones
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the regional agency chartered with protecting air quality in the Bay Area, is currently accepting applications for Advanced Technology Demonstration projects for truck and passenger vehicle-based projects including new types of hybrid, electric and natural gas vehicle and infrastructure projects as well as other technologies.
"These grants offer an exciting opportunity to develop new, state-of-the-art technology that will help improve air quality," said Jack Broadbent, executive officer of the Air District. "Cleaner cars mean cleaner air for Bay Area residents."
Eligible projects will test and/or demonstrate advanced emissions reduction technologies not currently implemented in the Bay Area and not certified by the California Air Resources Board.
Application and guidance materials are available at http://tinyurl.com/ycmsan7. The $2M program will remain open until the funds are allocated.
