Cheyenne, WY.  –  The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has just unveiled their Emission Reduction Pilot Program. The first phase focuses on Diesel Emission Reductions using federal grant funds.

Funding for the overall Emission Reduction Pilot Program will come from three different sources – Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA) funds, Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) funds, and Volkswagen Settlement funds

The goal is to provide incentives for projects that make direct emission reduction impacts in Wyoming.

Applicants that are qualified will include Wyoming State and Local government entities, schools, and industries that have older diesel equipment and/or vehicles.

“A fact sheet, application, and other relevant information are available on our website,” said Brian Hall, Outreach Manager for DEQ. “This is the first of many exciting funding opportunities where we can work together to reduce emissions in Wyoming.”

The first wave of applications are due January 26, 2018 and pertain specifically to DERA funds.
