Funding available to help clean up diesel emissions

PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) -

The Southeast Missouri Regional Planning Commission said Wednesday that funding remains available to help clean up emissions from diesel engines.

Eligible projects range from relatively inexpensive exhaust system improvements to complete vehicle replacement.

Funding is provided by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, according to economic planning officals. 

According to Kathy Hall with the Southeast Missouri Regional Planning and Economic Development Commission, both private business and those with the public sector are eligible for the program.

In 2010, there were auxiliary power units installed in five privately owned over-the-road trucks, along with 18-fuel-operated heaters installed in school buses.

Complete application packages are posted on the Commission's web site, www.semorpc.org.

The walk-in or mail address is 1 West Saint Joseph Street, P. O. Box 366, Perryville, Missouri, 63775.

Interested persons can email dgrimes@semorpc.org with questions.

According to Hall, the deadline for receipt of applications is December 16, 2011. Shortly after that, a lottery will be held of all complete and eligible applications with funding distributed on a strict "first-drawn first-funded" basis.

Once funds are awarded, the grantee will have the project done and be reimbursed afterward. All projects must be complete by June 30, 2012.
