From State Impact Pennsylvania

“Penn­syl­va­nia is hand­ing out money for nat­ural gas-fueled vehi­cle devel­op­ment, and the Depart­ment of Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion wants you to know about it.

The new impact fee law, Act 13, pro­vides $20 mil­lion in grants for pur­chas­ing nat­ural gas-fueled vehi­cles, or con­vert­ing cars and trucks so they run on com­pressed nat­ural gas, or CNG. The money will only go to local gov­ern­ments, non­profit groups, or state-related or owned uni­ver­si­ties — you can’t apply for a grant to pur­chase a new fam­ily car.

 DEP has set up a web­site with infor­ma­tion about the grant pro­gram. The por­tal says the agency will hold forums on nat­ural gas-fueled vehi­cles over the com­ing months.”
