New Hampshire DERA Project

The New Hampshire Clean Diesel Grant Program is a program funded by EPA through the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA). The program is managed by the Air Resources/Technical Services Bureau of NHDES. The goal of this grant program is to reduce the emissions from older diesel engines in the state. Projects eligible for funding include idle reduction technologies, engine replacement, vehicle and equipment replacement, exhaust controls, and aerodynamic technologies. Grant funding is available with a required match by the grantee; the match requirement depends on the project (i.e., an engine replacement requires a match of 60%; a vehicle replacement requires a match of 75%; a drayage truck replacement requires a match of 50%). EPA also offers competitive grants. For more information, go to EPA's webpage.

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) will have funds available in October 2019 through the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) program to help diesel equipment owners in New Hampshire reduce emissions. The Request for Project Proposals (RFP) will begin in October 2019 and will be announced on this website.

Any questions can be directed to Elizabeth Strachan at (603) 271-8330.
