As a result of the partial settlements with Volkswagen automakers, the state of Iowa anticipates receiving approximately $21 million from an environmental mitigation trust. These funds can be spent on defined eligible nitrogen oxides reduction projects.
Iowa wants to know how you think the funds should be spent and the types of projects you believe will achieve the greatest long-term impact to Iowa’s environment. The state is currently seeking input now through April 28, 2017.
