Texas Clean Fleet Program is now open and accepting applications!

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is now accepting applications under the Texas Clean Fleet Program (TCFP). Approximately $7.7 million in grants is available to encourage entities that operate large fleets of vehicles in Texas to replace diesel-powered vehicles with alternative fuel or hybrid vehicles. Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. CST, Monday, February 18, 2019.

Eligible applicants include entities that own and operate 75 or more on-road vehicles in Texas. Applications may be submitted under the TCFP to replace existing diesel-powered light-duty or heavy-duty vehicles with qualifying hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles. The applicant must commit to replacing at least 10 diesel-powered vehicles.

Eligible alternative fuels under this program include:

  • Electricity
  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
  • Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Hydrogen
  • Propane (LPG)
  • Methanol (M85)

If awarded a grant, at least 25% of the grant-funded vehicles annual use must occur in one or more of the counties within the Clean Transportation Zone.
