$10 Million Available for Zero- and Near-zero Emission School Buses.
School districts throughout the state have been alerted that applications for grant funding will be accepted March 1-30. All California public schools and California public entities that own school buses are eligible to apply. "This pilot project will help smaller school districts get rid of older, dirty school buses and replace them with ultra-clean and zero-emission models," said CARB Chair Mary D. Nichols. "Thanks to funds from the sale of the State's share of cap-and-trade allowances, school children will not only be helping to fight global warming, they will also be breathing less smog and cancer-causing air pollution."
