Eligible applicants for this funding opportunity include regional, state, local or tribal agencies or port authorities with jurisdiction over transportation or air quality.  Private entities that operate non-road construction equipment under a contract or lease with a public entity are also eligible to apply.  Applicants must operate their equipment in areas of poor air quality, and a full list of eligible counties is at: http://epa.gov/cleandiesel/documents/2013-construction-county-list.pdf.

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made available $2 million in funding for rebates to help public and private construction equipment owners replace or retrofit older diesel construction engines. The rebates will reduce harmful pollution and improve air quality in local areas.
