COLUMBUS—State Representative Marilyn Slaby (R-Copley) today announced that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now accepting applications for its 2017 School Bus Rebate Program.


The EPA is offering up to $20,000 in grant money per vehicle to replace older school buses and up to $6,000 per vehicle for retrofits. New and retrofitted vehicles will help reduce harmful exhaust emission, improving the health of students and the community.


“Many school districts throughout the state have old, high maintenance buses and suffer financially just to keep those buses running safely,” said Rep. Slaby. “These funds will help financially challenged districts replace buses and lower maintenance costs of their old buses.”


School districts, municipalities, or private entities that operate school buses through a contract may apply with the application form available at www.epa.gov/cleandiesel/clean-diesel-rebates. The application period is open until November 14, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.
