Funding Opportunity: Assist in the Purchase of Clean Fuel Vehicles and Diesel Retrofit Technologies | Due April 30

Funding Opportunity
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) is seeking proposals for the Connecticut Clean Fuel (CCF) program. The CCF program was created to promote clean transportation by encouraging municipalities and other public transportation entities to include alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) and/or diesel retrofit technologies (DRT) in their fleets. The program encourages adoption of clean fuel vehicle technology by providing funds for the differential cost between conventionally fueled vehicles and vehicles that operate on compressed natural gas, propane, electricity or other alternative source of power. Electric hybrid vehicles are eligible under this program. The program also provides funds for the full cost of DRT hardware. The installation and maintenance cost is the responsibility of your organization. Examples of DRT include diesel particulate filters, diesel oxidation catalysts and closed crankcase filtration systems.

Since the program funds the differential cost of AFVs, choosing an AFV for your fleet will generally cost you no more than the equivalent gasoline or diesel version of that vehicle.
