Align Diesel Grant Program with Federal Guidelines
Administrative Order No. DEQ 3-2014
Filed and Effective March 31, 2014
The Oregon Clean Diesel grant program promotes exhaust retrofits, non-road engine repowers and truck scrapping to reduce diesel engine emissions. Federal grants allow for a broader range of activities, including idle reduction technologies and vehicle replacement, for funding under EPA program rules. SB 249, adopted by the 2013 Oregon legislature authorizes DEQ to apply for and administer federal grants under the more comprehensive federal guidelines. The EQC amended the program's governing rules to incorporate this authority.
