Give Up Gas! Grants Available for Alternative-Fuel Vehicles

Wednesday June 5th, 2019
Townships that want to purchase or convert vehicles to natural gas or other alternative fuels may apply for funding through DEP’s Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant (AFIG) Program. The deadline for applications is July 12.
 
Grants are available for the conversion or purchase of natural gas vehicles, as well as the conversion or purchase of electric, propane, or other alternative-fuel vehicles of any size.
 
This year, there is no gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) limit and no minimum number of vehicles required to apply for a vehicle purchase or retrofit reimbursement.
 
Grants are also available to fund the purchase and installation of refueling infrastructure for alternative-fuel fleet vehicles. This category includes two options:
 
• Fleet refueling projects must service an existing fleet of at least 10 alternative-fuel vehicles weighing up to 26,000 pounds GVWR, and
 
• Home-based refueling projects must be located at the base of operations for one or more alternative-fuel vehicles weighing up to 10,000 pounds GVWR.
