Funding Opportunity

The DEQ has opened a second round of applications for projects and funding from the Volkswagen Mitigation Trust. Application submittal for project funding is available through the LDEQ’s VW webpage online application: https://deq.louisiana.gov/form/volkswagen-eligible-mitigation-action-projectapplication-state-beneficiary-louisiana. Apply by the deadline, April 12. If you have any questions concerning the application, please send them to vwsettlement@la.gov.

Louisiana is soliciting proposed projects for consideration by the LDEQ, the Department of Natural Resources (LDNR), and the Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD). This is the application for the second-year funds. There were three Louisiana state agencies designated to receive equal shares of the fund: LDEQ, the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (LDNR) and the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD). The agencies, with public input, are proposing to pool their funds to target replacement of eligible diesel school buses. The bus replacement program will offer partial funding primarily to school districts to replace their buses with electric, alternative fuel or high-efficiency diesel vehicles and for electric vehicle infrastructure.
