FEDERAL TRANSIT ADMINISTRATION
The U.S. Department of Transportation announces $59.3 million for 27 projects that will help transit agencies to accommodate cleaner, greener buses that reduce harmful emissions, improve fuel economy, and save on operating costs. Funds are provided through the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) FY2012 Clean Fuels Grant Program. Between FY2010 and FY2012, this program has provided a total of $211.8 million for 92 projects across the United States.
These projects are funded in “attainment areas” as designated by the Environmental Protection Agency, which means they meet or exceed national air quality standards.
These projects are funded in non-attainment areas, meaning they do not meet national air quality standards.
These states did not submit proposals for the FY2012 Clean Fuels Grant Program.
