In March 2018, Nevada DEP released a final BMP. That plan is located below and includes the following allocations:
Flex Funds 80%
EV Light Duty Infrastructure 15%
NDEP is accepting applications for the 2021 cycle through January 15, 2022. A total of $8 million is available to assist public and private fleets with the replacement of older diesel-powered vehicles and equipment with new alternative fuel and zero tailpipe emission vehicles and equipment. NDEP hosted a webinar on November 3, 2021; the recording is on NDEP website.
The list of eligible projects for the DEMF's 2021 Competitive Application is as follows:
- Class 4-8 medium- and heavy-duty diesel powered trucks with a 1992 through 2009 engine model year
- Class 4-8 school buses, shuttle buses, and transit buses with a 2009 or older engine model year
- Tier 0, Tier 1, or Tier 2 diesel-powered airport ground support equipment
- Uncertified, or certified to 3 g/bhp-hr or higher emissions, spark ignition engine powered airport ground support equipment
- Forklifts and port cargo handling equipment with greater than 8,000 pounds lift capacity
- Pre-Tier 4 diesel-powered switcher locomotives that operate 1,000 or more hours per year
- Projects from the EPA’s DERA State Grant Program Information Guide that are not also listed above
There are three changes to this application compared to the 2019 application.
- Eligibility – NDEP will only be selecting applications from applicants who have not been awarded funding in previous DEMF cycles.
- Fuel Types – NDEP is only funding diesel-to-alternative fuel or diesel-to-zero tailpipe emission replacement/repower projects and will no longer accept applications for diesel-to-diesel replacement/repower projects.
- Funding Levels for Eligible Mitigation Action Categories 1 through 8 – NDEP is now offering to fund the incremental cost of a program eligible replacement/repower project as opposed to the flat dollar amounts in previous cycles. Note: funding limits inherent to the State Trust still apply.
