EPA awards $325,000 in rebates to five New England School Districts to replace older model school buses with newer buses that are 90% cleaner. The five districts are: Barre Town School District, VT; GRS School District, NH; and Killingly School District, Montville Public Schools, and Canton Public Schools (CT).
The rebates are part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National School Bus Rebate Program funded through the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA). The program awarded more than $3 million in rebates to replace 210 older diesel school buses from seventy-six school bus fleets in thirty states.
The NEDC Strategic Planning Committee is currently seeking stakeholders that are interested in 'rolling up their sleeves and getting to work' on the region's important transportation and air quality challenges.
