The SCAQMD plans to open a new funding opportunity on Aug. 18 for zero-emission Class 8 Freight and Port Drayage Trucks. The solicitation for the first installment of $27 million in statewide funding is scheduled for release pending approval by the South Coast AQMD Board on Friday, August 7, 2020. If approved, applications will be accepted online beginning Tuesday, August 18, 2020, at 1:00 PM PST. Eligible projects will be awarded funding on a first-come, first-served basis.  The SCQAMD plans to release a Combustion Freight and Marine Projects solicitation in the 4th Quarter of 2020.  This future opportunity will include funding for Class 7 & 8 Freight Trucks powered by low-NOx engines and includes drayage trucks, waste haulers, dump trucks, and concrete mixers. There also will be funding for freight switchers.  See here:  https://xappprod.aqmd.gov/vw/combustion.html
