Clean Fleet Grants

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) administers the Texas Clean Fleet Program (TCFP) as part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan. TCFP encourages owners of fleets containing diesel vehicles to permanently remove the vehicles from the road and replace them with alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) or hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Grants are available to fleets to offset the incremental cost of such replacement projects. An entity that operates a fleet of at least 75 vehicles, including at least 20 diesel-powered vehicles, and that commits to placing 20 or more qualifying vehicles in service for use entirely in Texas during a given calendar year may be eligible. Qualifying AFV or HEV replacements must reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides or other pollutants by at least 25% as compared to baseline levels and must replace vehicles that meet operational and fuel usage requirements. Neighborhood electric vehicles do not qualify. This program ends August 31, 2017, and is restricted to certain counties. Funds are not currently available for fiscal year 2015-2016 (verified July 2015). For more information, including current application periods, see the TCEQ Texas Clean Fleet Program website.
