DEP Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program

August 19th, 2022

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Energy Programs Office is currently accepting applications for grants under the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant (AFIG) Program. AFIG is intended to help the Commonwealth reach its greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals, improve air quality and reduce consumption of imported oil through the use of homegrown alternative fuels that will help this Commonwealth's economy and environment. The DEP is seeking applications for innovative, advanced fuel and vehicle technology projects resulting in cleaner alternative transportation within this Commonwealth.  Alternative fuels include electricity, compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, propane, hydrogen, hythane, biodiesel, ethanol, methanol, and other advanced biofuels.

Approximately $3 million in grants is available for school districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, nonprofit entities, corporations, limited liability companies or partnerships incorporated or registered in the Commonwealth.
