Administration Allocates $500 Million for Clean School Buses

May 20, 2022, 3:16 PM

The EPA announced $500 million is now available for school districts and eligible school bus operators and contractors to begin replacing school buses with clean, American-made, zero-emission buses, representing the first round of a $5 billion investment for low- and zero-emission school buses over the next five years, according to the agency Friday.

Applications will be accepted from May 20 to Aug. 19.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law allows the prioritization of applications serving high-need local education agencies, tribal schools, and rural areas, according to the agency.
