Clean School Bus Program
With funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new Clean School Bus Program provides $5 billion over the next five years (FY 2022-2026) to replace existing school buses with zero-emission and low-emission models. EPA is offering $500 million through the 2022 Clean School Bus Rebates for zero-emission and low-emission school bus rebates as the first funding opportunity. The application window for the 2022 Clean School Bus Rebates opened on May 20, 2022 and closes on August 19, 2022. DPI encourages local governments and school districts to review the program guidance and submit rebate applications if appropriate. District officials can also reach out to Maria Redmond, Director of the Office of Sustainability and Clean Energy, at email@example.com with questions.
