EPA will host a listening session about the Clean School Bus Program in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This program will offer $5 billion over five years to replace older school buses with clean school buses that are zero-emission or use alternative fuels. Eligible recipients for funding through this new program include: state and local governments, certain contractors, nonprofit school transportation associations, and Tribes, Tribal organizations or Tribally-controlled schools.
EPA will provide an overview of the legislation and seeks input from stakeholders on developing a successful program to achieve nationwide deployment of clean and zero-emission school buses. Webinar participants will have an opportunity to speak for up to two minutes to provide feedback. Depending on participation, not every attendee may have time to speak, but interested parties may also submit suggestions about program implementation to email@example.com.
The session will be held on Wednesday, December 15, 3:00-4:30 pm ET.
