FTA seeks applicants for $180 million in 'Low-No' emissions grants


The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has announced the availability of up to $180 million in competitive grant funds through a notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for its Low or No Emission (Low-No) Grant Program

The program helps eligible project sponsors purchase or lease low- or no-emission vehicles and supports facilities that use advanced technologies to provide cleaner, more energy efficient transit operations in communities across the country. 

This year’s NOFO will prioritize applications with an environmental justice component as well as those that will support workforce development activities to help America’s transit workers succeed.

Eligible applicants for funding include public transit agencies, state transportation departments and Native American tribes. Projects will be evaluated by criteria defined in federal law and in the NOFO, including the applicant’s demonstration of need, the project’s benefits, project implementation strategy and capacity for implementing the project.

Funding proposals will be accepted until April 12.
