During Phase 1 the DEQ will allocate funds through five different programs as follows:
School bus replacement program: 35%
Transit bus replacement program: 20%
Clean heavy-duty on-road equipment program: 10%
Clean heavy-duty off-road equipment program: 15%
Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure: 15%
The DEQ is seeking input on this draft plan through five stakeholder information sessions and e-mail comments to: daq.NC_VWGrants@ncdenr.gov.
