Information on how to apply for eligibility as a Participating Dealer under the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grants Program.

A Program of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP)


Are proposals being accepted under this program?

Yes. Proposals will be accepted and considered until April 1, 2015. Qualifying entities are strongly encouraged to submit proposals to TCEQ as soon as possible so that they will be able to participate in the initial Dealer Training. The TCEQ expects to hold Dealer Training in Fall 2013 and to open the grant application period soon thereafter.

What entities are eligible to apply as a Participating Dealer?

Interested entities should review the Request for Proposal (RFP) (PDF) for detailed requirements and information about eligibility.

Entities that sell, lease, or otherwise commercially finance the sale or lease of on-road heavy-duty or medium-duty natural gas vehicles or heavy-duty or medium-duty natural gas engines, or repower original vehicles with qualifying natural gas engines may submit proposals for Participating Dealer eligibility under the TNGVGP. Eligibility as a Participating Dealer is not guaranteed and TCEQ will make the final determination.

Minimum Eligibility Requirements

  • Must have the authority to conduct business in the State of Texas, maintain a physical presence within the State on a permanent basis, and maintain all permits and licenses necessary for performance under the Agreement.
  • Must have all legal authority from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMS) to offer the natural gas vehicles, engines, conversion systems, and fuel systems proposed for sale, lease, and/or the commercial financing of sales or leases.
  • Must be the primary entity that will sell or lease the grant equipment, perform the repower activities, or provide the commercial financing for these activities.
  • Must be the entity that will deliver the vehicle or service and provide the final, packaged invoice to the grantee.
  • Must be willing to accept the assignment of the payment of the grant reimbursement by the grantee, if the assignment request by the grantee is approved by TCEQ.

Considerations

  • An entity must demonstrate in its proposal that it can achieve the performance requirements outlined in the RFP and Participating Dealer Terms and Conditions.
  • Entities that thoroughly explain and support any claims made in their proposal will increase their chances of selection.
