2023 Grant Program for Truck Emission Reduction Opens

The transportation department focuses on projects to reduce emissions caused by vehicle idling.

The Department of Transportation has opened applications for the Reduction of Truck Emissions at Port Facilities Grant Program, which will distribute $400 million for the 2023 fiscal year. 

“When truckers spend hours idling at ports, it costs them time, takes money out of their pockets, and pollutes the air in nearby communities,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. “The investments we are announcing today will save truck drivers time and money, help ports reduce congestion and emissions, and deliver better air quality for workers and communities alike.”

The grant program is seeking projects that will improve the air quality for communities that live near truck ports, where idling trucks create more localized pollution than in other areas of the country. Projects that improve truck electrification, develop emission-reducing infrastructure, or use low emissions fuels on trucks are all eligible for this grant funding.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees the grant program for emission-reducing projects.
  • For transportation officials as they evaluate and monitor the air pollution caused by idling trucks.
  • For the president and his administration as they pursue environmental improvements.
