Texas Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Program (TxVEMP) Accepting Applications for Refuse Vehicle

The second round of funding for projects under the Texas Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Program (TxVEMP) to replace or repower a variety of vehicles used to haul waste, including garbage trucks, roll-off trucks, dump trucks, sweeper trucks, chipper trucks, and grapple trucks, remains open. Approximately $8.3 million in funding is available and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Local governments are eligible to receive up to 80% funding for replacements and repowers. Due to the variety of eligible vehicles, cities that contract out waste hauling services may still be able to take advantage of available funds. Approximately $2.3 million has already been requested and funding goes fast so apply as soon as possible! Email for more specific questions.

An eligible refuse vehicle must:

[if !supportLists]· [endif]be powered by a diesel engine of model year 1992-2009; and
