COLUMBUS—State Representative Stephen Huffman (R-Tipp City) 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.


“This grant money is an excellent opportunity for schools to invest in new and improved transportation for their students,” said Rep. Huffman. “I encourage all eligible local entities to apply through the website listed below.”


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.
