Clean Cities Coalition Seeking Partners (4/30/09)
The ARRA included a $300 million allocation to the Clean Cities program, which seeks to further domestic manufacture and use of energy-efficient advanced Transportation vehicles, alternative fuel vehicles, and alternative fuels. Prospective applicants include states, local governments, metropolitan Transportation authorities (or combinations of these) working with a Clean Cities coalition. Click here for more information.
In response, the Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition is seeking partners to strengthen a regional application. Funding from this grant can be used to cost-share projects (50/50) that expand the use of alternative fuels or advance vehicle technologies, including the installation of infrastructure. Minimum grant awards are $5 million. The City of Chicago’s Department of the Environment is on board. If interested in partnering with the Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition, a pre-application must be submitted to them by Wednesday, May 13, 2009.
