EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality is soliciting proposals nationwide for projects that achieve significant reductions in diesel emissions in terms of tons of pollution produced by diesel engines and diesel emissions exposure, particularly from fleets operating at or servicing goods movement facilities located in areas designated as having poor air quality. Further, priority for funding may be given to projects which result in outcomes that benefit affected communities, those that engage local communities with respect to the design and performance of the project, and those which can demonstrate the ability to promote and continue efforts to reduce emissions after the project has ended.

Eligible diesel emission reduction solutions include verified emission control technologies such as exhaust controls, cleaner fuels, and engine upgrades, verified idle reduction technologies, verified aerodynamic technologies and low rolling resistance tires, certified engine re-powers, and/or certified vehicle or equipment replacement.

Eligible diesel vehicles, engines and equipment may include buses, Class 5 – Class 8 heavy-duty highway vehicles, marine engines, locomotives and non-road engines, equipment or vehicles used in construction, handling of cargo (including at a port or airport), agriculture, mining or energy production (including stationary generators and pumps).

The Communities Addressing Childhood Trauma Program (ACT) seeks to address unhealthy behaviors in minority and/or disadvantaged youth, ages 5-15 years when they enter the program, who have been exposed to childhood trauma. ACT is intended to test the effectiveness of innovative approaches in promoting healthy behaviors among minority and/or disadvantaged youth at-risk for poor health/life outcomes due to childhood trauma.

These innovative approaches (including curricula) should be designed for minority and/or disadvantaged youth ages 5 to 15 years who have been exposed to childhood trauma, as well as support services to their families. These demonstration grants should take a multi-partner approach involving: a university/college/research institution or a Tribal epidemiology center or Urban Indian Health Organization; a community-based organization/faith-based organization; a public health and/or health care organization; and an organization(s) that provides behavioral health services.

Additional collaborating partners may include primary and secondary schools, sports organizations, youth clubs, other related community organizations and institutions, and the community at-large who have experience addressing reduction in behaviors among targeted minority youth 5 to 15 years of age.
