Both public and private school bus fleets can apply for rebates. Pictured is a private sector bus funded in the pilot program.
EPA announced that funding will again be available for school bus replacements this fall. This is the second time EPA will open the DERA School Bus Replacement Funding Opportunity. In 2012, EPA launched a pilot rebate program with $2 million in funding and gave rebates to 28 recipients to help replace more than 80 school buses.
EPA anticipates awarding $3 million in rebate funds to public and private school bus fleet owners. Recipients will be chosen by a lottery system. EPA will begin accepting applications for rebate program in the fall of 2014. Please check back for details or sign up for email updates below.
