ACOG CLEAN AIR Grants for Public Sector Fleets
The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments issues an annual Request for Proposals under its "Creating Long-term Energy Alternatives Now by Advancing Improvements Regionally" (CLEAN AIR) Grants program for alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicle projects in the Oklahoma City Area Regional Transportation Study (OCARTS) area. Eligible applicants are currently restricted to OCARTS-member governments, certain public trusts and public authorities providing essential services to OCARTS-member governments, member entity public transit fleets, and to public school fleets whose district boundaries are contained partially or wholly within the OCARTS area.
Projects are funded with Federal Highway Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) funds, must provide a reduction in vehicle/mobile equipment emissions, and cannot increase the number of vehicles or rolling stock in applicant fleets.
Other eligible projects may include alternative fuel vehicle refueling and recharging infrastructure, and certain off-road vehicle/mobile equipment projects that reduce emissions compared to conventional fuel counterparts.
Currently open ACOG CLEAN AIR Grant solicitations can be found on the ACOG website at www.acogok.org/solicitations.
