Award Description: MISSOURI DNR WAS AWARDED A NATIONAL CLEAN DIESEL FUNDING ASSISTANCE PROGRAM GRANT TO FUND A RETROFIT AND REPLACEMENT PROJECT TARGETING DIESEL VEHICLES IN THE SAINT LOUIS AND SPRINGFIELD AREAS. THE GENERAL PURPOSE OF THE GRANT IS TO REDUCE DIESEL EMISSIONS AND IMPROVE AIR QUALITY.
Project Description: During this quarter no retrofit or replacement projects were completed. In St. Louis, the subgrant was signed and returned by St. Louis Regional Clean Cities (SLRCC). SLRCC drafted subgrant agreements for the St. Louis area fleet owners. In Springfield, the subgrant was signed and returned by the Ozark Center for Sustainable Solutions at Drury University (OCSS). OCSS created subgrant agreements and sent them out to all ten school districts. Nine of those ten school districts have signed and returned their subgrant agreements to OCSS. Some school districts have begun ordering diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC) and new buses.
