Estimated $16 million in funding available for the Texas Clean Fleet Program

July 18, 2022. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is now accepting applications for the Texas Clean Fleet Program (TCFP) with an estimated $16 million in grant funding available for fleet owners in Texas to replace aging diesel vehicles with new hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles. Grants may reimburse up to 80% of the cost of the new vehicle.

Grants are available for entities who own and operate a fleet of 75 or more on-road vehicles in Texas and who apply to replace at least 10 of those vehicles with new hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles powered by:

  • Electricity
  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
  • Liquified Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Hydrogen
  • Propane, or
  • A mixture of fuels containing at least 85% methanol by volume (M85).

Those interested in applications can find both the grant application and the required W-9 form on the TCEQ website. Applications for the Clean Fleet program will be accepted until 5 p.m. Sept. 16.

The Clean Fleet program is part of the Texas Emission Reduction Plan, which “provides incentives to owners of large truck fleets in Texas to replace diesel-powered vehicles with alternative fuel or hybrid vehicles.”
