TCEQ Opens Second Round of AFFP Grant
If you have ever thought about switching to an alternative fuel vehicle but worried that not enough refueling options exist, TCEQ is trying to fix that. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) recently announced a second round of funding for the Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP) as part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP). The grant funds up to 50% of total construction costs associated with building new alternative fueling facilities for a maximum of $600,000. Eligible fuels include natural gas (CNG or LNG), biodiesel, hydrogen, methanol, propane, and electric charging. Most NCTCOG counties are eligible to apply (Erath, Palo Pinto, and Somervell counties are excluded). The application deadline is March 29, 2018.
