ERG Helps EPA Revive the Midwest Clean Diesel Initiative

workshop

In November, ERG staff traveled to Davenport, Iowa, to help EPA spread the word about funding for diesel emission reduction strategies and technologies to school districts, local government agencies, transit operators, fleets, and inland port marine vessel operators along the Iowa-Illinois banks of the Mississippi River. ERG helped develop an agenda that featured speakers addressing upcoming grant opportunities from EPA, state and regional sources, and Volkswagen Settlement funds, as well as a fireside chat with successful grant applicants who shared their experiences applying for funds and completing projects. EPA will be looking to ERG’s diesel and outreach expertise to build off the success of this workshop and reconstruct the Midwest Clean Diesel Initiative—a regional collaborative that aims to reduce emissions and protect public health in America’s heartland.
