On September 5, 2018, New York State released its Beneficiary Mitigation Plan to outline the use of their $127.7 million in VW settlement funds. A breakdown of the funds by action item is below.
New York plans to devote at least 60% of its funds toward the electrification of both on- and off-road equipment. “The plan seeks to prioritize the replacement of diesel vehicles and equipment with all-electric replacements.”
The state will continue to accept comments as they move forward with the plan. The comments may be submitted to VWsettlement@dec.ny.gov.
