Administration Launches Clean School Bus Program

Part of President Biden’s infrastructure plan. 

Vice President Kamala Harris and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan recently announced the launching of the Clean School Bus program. The infrastructure law passed last year authorizes the EPA to offer rebates to replace diesel school buses with what the EPA calls “clean and zero-emission models.” Electric buses will be prioritized over alternative fuels. 

The first round of funding for the program will be awarded as lottery rebates. The lottery will prioritize applications from prioritized school districts—low-income, rural, tribal, and/or high-needs schools. The EPA  will award up to $300 million this year, and the deadline for applications for this year’s rebate program is August 19, 2022. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Vice President Harris as she support the president’s agenda and represents the nation.
  • For Administrator Regan to seek God’s guidance as he leads the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • For U.S. officials as they work to transition diesel school buses to electric vehicles.
