Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG)

The Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG) Program offers grants to upgrade or replace on-road vehicles, non-road equipment, stationary equipment, marine vessels, locomotives, on-vehicle electrification and idle reduction infrastructure, and rail relocation and improvement projects, which must result in a reduction of emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) of at least 25%.
