Clean Transportation Triangle (CTT) Program and Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP)
A Program of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP)
The Clean Transportation Triangle (CTT) program and the Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP) were established by Senate Bill 385, 82nd Legislature, Regular Session, 2011. Both CTT and AFFP were modified by Senate Bill 1727, 83rd Legislature, Regular Session, 2013.
The TCEQ invites applications for both the CTT and AFFP grant programs under a Joint Request For Grant Applications (RFGA) to be open from November 15, 2013 to February 18, 2014, 5:00 p.m., CST.

The purpose of the CTT is to provide grants for the creation of natural gas fueling stations in the 63-eligible CTT Texas counties. The purpose of the AFFP is to provide grants for the construction, reconstruction, or acquisition of facilities to store, compress or dispense alternative fuel within the 18 Texas nonattainment counties and El Paso county.
Both the CTT and AFFP can fund natural gas fueling stations and are available to fund projects in the state's nonattainment areas. Even though both grant programs have unique features (i.e., fuel options, funding allocations and geographic requirements), because of the similarities between these programs, the TCEQ is soliciting applications for both programs under this joint RFGA and is providing one application track for applicants to apply to one or both programs, depending on the eligibility of the project. For applicants familiar with previous CTT and AFFP requirements and grant application periods, the criteria for these programs were modified by Senate Bill (SB) 1727, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013. The changes to the CTT under SB 1727 included an increase to the maximum grant amounts and expansion of the eligible areas. The maximum grant amounts under the AFFP were also increased.
Applications meeting the project eligibility requirements for both programs will be considered under both programs. However, a project may only be awarded a grant from one of the programs, and not both. Applications meeting the eligibility requirements for only one of the programs will be considered for that program.
