Reducing Diesel Emissions: What Vermont is Doing

Reducing public exposure to emissions from diesel-powered engines and equipment is one of the greatest air quality challenges facing the country. Even with more stringent engine standards in place for heavy-duty highway and nonroad vehicles and equipment, millions of diesel engines already in use will continue to emit large amounts of particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxides (NOx), air toxics and greenhouse gases, which contribute to serious risks to public health and the environment.

Funding Opportunities

The Air Quality and Climate Division  administers funding to provide incentives for reducing air pollution.  Past and current programs focus on woodstove change outs, diesel emissions reduction, and outdoor wood-fired boiler change outs.  Current funding opportunities are listed below. Funding availability changes over time, so please check back often to see what current opportunities are.
