The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is offering $5 million in grants to make school buses cleaner for the 24 million children who travel by bus to and from school every day. The grants are available under EPA’s Clean School Bus USA initiative, which is designed to limit children’s exposure to the harmful effects of diesel exhaust from school buses. EPA expects to make up to 20 awards to help school districts across the country upgrade their school bus fleets, either by replacing older buses with new, cleaner ones or by retrofitting existing buses with devices that reduce diesel air pollution.
