Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) State Funds

The State DERA funding is part of the National Clean Diesel Campaign.  Congress passed DERA and tasked EPA to oversee the implementation.  The funding allocated to DERA is split between EPA and the States, with 30% of the overall funding going directly to the States. Georgia has used this funding to reduced emissions in our school bus fleets.  The state offers grant funding to school systems to install emissions control devices or replace buses early.
