Texas Volkswagen Grant Funding for Refuse Vehicles
The second round of funding for projects under the Texas Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Program (TxVEMP) remains open to replace or repower a variety of refuse vehicles. Approximately $8.3 million in funding has been allocated to the Dallas-Fort Worth priority area and continues to 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 and cities that contract out, waste hauling services may still be able to take advantage of available funds. Of the $8.3 million allocated to the DFW area, $2.5 million has already been requested and funding goes fast, so apply today!
