In FY 2008, EPA distributed more than $50 million
across the country to help qualifying entities reduce
diesel emissions. EPA has awarded more than
$300 million through the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009 to support clean diesel
projects under the following programs:

   The National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance
   Program funds efforts to deploy EPA-verified
   and -certified technologies. This competitive grant
   program is administered by EPA's regional offices.

   The National Clean Diesel Emerging Technologies
   Program fosters the deployment of innovative
   technologies through a national grant competition.
   To qualify as an emerging technology, a manufacturer
   must have an EPA-approved application and test plan
   for verification.

..•  The SmartWay Clean Diesel Finance Program issues
   competitive grants to establish national low-cost
   revolving loans or other financing programs that will
   provide funding to fleets to reduce diesel emissions.

   The State Clean Diesel Grant Program is an
   allocation process that makes funds directly available
   to states to establish programs that reduce diesel
   emissions from the existing fleet.

Be a Part of the Success
Since 2000, EPA has awarded more than 600 grants for
diesel emission reduction projects nationwide through
the National Clean Diesel Campaign. These projects have
reduced harmful diesel emissions and are helping to keep
