The 2017 Diesel Emission Reduction Act Grants have been announced. The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency received a $650,000 grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency for their Puget Sound Harbor Vessel Engine Replacement Program. This program aims to reduce diesel emissions from up to eight vessels in the Puget Sound.
In 2016, the Lummi tribe of the Lummi Reservation received a grant for $300,606 to replace six diesel engines on fishing vessels.
The next round of requests for proposals will be this month, March 2018.
