1. Clean School Bus
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will be awarding approximately $400 million in competitive grant funding under the Clean School Bus (CSB) Grants Program Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). The program is soliciting applications nationwide for a grant competition to fund the replacement of existing school buses with clean and zero-emission (ZE) school buses. All application packages need to be submitted electronically to EPA through Grants.gov no later than Tuesday, August 22, 2023. This looks to be a wonderful opportunity to help Wisconsin school districts update school bus fleets with greener options.
