The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) announced that applications are being accepted from Indiana public school corporations for the Indiana Propane School Bus grant program. This marks the fourth round of grant funding made available by OED dedicated to propane school buses. Grant recipients will receive between 50 percent to 100 percent of the incremental cost difference between a new propane-powered school bus and a diesel or gasoline-powered school bus. To be eligible, Indiana public school corporations must own their own buses. Projects must involve the purchase of a minimum of two new propane school buses. Applicants must have access to propane fueling infrastructure or show that they will have access if awarded a grant. While cost sharing of the incremental cost is not a requirement for applicants, special consideration is given to applications that leverage additional funding or those with in-kind funding. Applications are accepted through October 19th. Application instructions are available at https://www.in.gov/oed/2733.htm. Grant recipients will be notified by November 1st. Questions about this grant can be directed to [email protected].
