      • NC Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ), Diesel Emissions Reductions Grant (DERG)
        The Diesel Emissions Reductions grant (DERG) funds projects that will replace or retrofit current diesel fleets, with the intention of reducing diesel emissions. Approximately $231,500 is available for all projects funded statewide.  The Division of Air Quality expects to fund 3 to 5 projects.
      • VW Settlement: Emissions Mitigation Projects
      • VW accepted the $14.9 billion penalty after acknowledging that it installed devices on certain diesel vehicles to make them appear to meet strict emissions standards when in fact they did not. Funds will be used by states to buy back affected vehicles as well as fund environmental mitigation and investment to promote the use of zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) and infrastructure. North Carolina will receive approximately $92 million, based on the number of affected 2.0- and 3.0-liter diesel engine vehicles registered here. The sum is part of the $2.9 billion designed for projects through the EPA’s Environmental Mitigation Trust.
