TNGVGP: Participating Dealers

This page outlines who is eligible to become a participating dealer and how to apply to become a participating dealer.

The TCEQ is now accepting Proposal Forms from entities interested in entering into an agreement with the TCEQ as Participating Dealers for the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program (TNGVGP) during the Fiscal Biennium 2016-2017.

Participating Dealers under contract with the TCEQ during the Fiscal Biennium 2014-2015 must reapply for eligiblity as a Participating Dealer during the Fiscal Biennium 2016-2017.

The TCEQ expects to hold Participating Dealer training in Fall 2015. Interested entities are strongly encouraged to submit Participating Dealer Proposal Forms to the TCEQ as soon as possible so that they will be able to participate in the Fall training.

To apply for a grant under the TNGVGP, applicants must go through a Participating Dealer under contract with the TCEQ. Participating Dealers are responsible for various tasks during the grant process, including but not limited to reviewing project eligibility, assistance with application completion and submission, and arranging for the inspection and disposition of the vehicles being replaced or repowered.


Who is Eligible to Become a Participating Dealer?

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.

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

Minimum Eligibility Requirements

  • An eligible entity 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.

  • An eligible entity 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.

  • An eligible entity must be the entity that will deliver the vehicle or service.

  • An eligible entity 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.

Proposal 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
