Air Grants: Funding for Vehicles, Equipment, and Fuel Infrastructure

We provide grants to replace or upgrade older vehicles and equipment to reduce emissions—from electric cars and charging stations to dump trucks, and from tractors to delivery trucks.

New or upgraded models pollute less than older ones, improving air quality in Texas. Individuals, businesses, and state and local governments may be eligible for these grants under Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) and Texas Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Program (TxVEMP).

The most common projects eligible to receive funding under the TERP and TxVEMP programs, and links to the program webpages, are provided below.
