October 21, 2020 |

In Pennsylvania, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded up to $5.5 million in clean diesel funding to the Mid-Atlantic Region organizations to support their clean diesel programs and projects to reduce emissions.

The organizations include the Mid-Atlantic Regional Air Management Association, Inc. (MARAMA), for a $1.7 million award, the Virginia Port Authority for a $2.4 million award and the National Biodiesel Foundation for a $1.4 million award.

Over $50 million in Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) National Grants Program funding is expected to be awarded this year for projects aimed at reducing diesel emissions from the nation’s existing fleet of old engines and vehicles. Additionally, EPA anticipates providing approximately $23.5 million under DERA’s 2020 State Grants program to 48 states and four territories to implement their own diesel emissions reduction programs.
