Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP)

The AFFP program offers grants for the construction or expansion of natural gas and other alternative fuel fueling stations within the Clean Transportation Zone. Effective September 1, 2017, the Texas Health and Safety Code (THSC) Chapters 393 and 394 were amended to combine the AFFP and the Clean Transportation Triangle (CTT) programs.

A Program of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP)

Effective September 1, 2017 the provisions from the CTT were added to the existing provisions for the AFFP to create one new program under the AFFP. Applications may not be submitted for funding consideration at this time. Please check back soon for updated AFFP program information.
