New and upgraded equipment pollutes less, improving the air quality in Texas. Grant applications are accepted at different times throughout the year, depending on available funds.

We believe these to be taxable grants. Please consult with your tax advisor.

UPDATE: The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has received a sufficient number of applications under the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program (TNGVGP) to award all of the funding available for this fiscal year. Therefore, those grant applications received beyond the funding threshold for this fiscal year will be held in their original queuing order and processed for contract consideration after the new fiscal year begins in September 2014 when more grant funds become available. New grant information will be posted as details become available.

The Participating Dealer solicitation and Information Request for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are both still active. Please visit the TNGVGP Web page to learn more.
