How to Apply

Applicants should review the following documents for detailed requirements for each project type and information about applicant eligibility:

Find the Emission Standard for the equipment being replaced or repowered using the table applicable to your equipment type:

Use the following resources to help determine the engine family code and federal emission standard for your equipment:

An applicant may request up to 80% of the incremental cost (total eligible cost) associated with the purchase or lease of the replacement equipment, not to exceed an incentive amount that results in a cost per ton (CPT) of NOx reduced as specified below:

  • Marine and Locomotive Projects: $20,000 CPT
  • Stationary Projects: $35,000 CPT
  • Non-Road Equipment Projects: $35,000 CPT

Applications will be scored and ranked based on the projected cost per ton of NOx reduced and the total projected NOx reductions. The grant estimators provided below will help you calculate the maximum grant amount, total tons of NOx reduced, and cost per ton of NOx reduced for your project.

Grant Estimators

Please note that the results of the grant estimator are only estimates and the final calculations for your project will be completed by TCEQ.

The methodology TCEQ uses to calculate a project’s total projected NOx reductions and projected cost per ton of NOx reduced may be found in the technical supplements below.
