The Clean Buses for Kids Program provides funds to school districts and other eligible public entities to: purchase and install emission control equipment to reduce diesel particulate emissions from school buses; and offset costs associated with the ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel required by that equipment. The maximum funding award will be $750,000 per entity; the minimum award will be $30,000 per entity. It is estimated that the cost of each bus retrofit will range from $6,500 to $7,500. Costs outside this range may require additional explanation or documentation. Grants will be awarded by lottery to eligible applicants who apply by the deadline.
