Grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis to reimburse up to 80 percent of the cost to replace a school bus with a newer, cleaner model, and up to 100 percent of the cost to retrofit a school bus.

Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on Dec. 17, 2020 or until all funding is awarded.
