The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) this afternoon began accepting applications for 2024 Texas Clean School Bus (TCSB) funding.

The funding is available for replacing or retrofitting school buses to help reduce children’s exposure to diesel exhaust in and around diesel fueled school buses.

Buses eligible for this program must be used on a regular daily route.

The statewide grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. They may reimburse up to 100 percent of the cost to retrofit school buses or up to 80 percent of the cost to replace school buses with newer, cleaner models.

Although the official deadline for submitting applications is Oct. 14, 2024, the total available funding [to be determined] for this extremely popular program has always been exhausted long before the posted deadlines to apply.
