Friday, January 04, 2019

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is now accepting grant applications for the Seaport and Rail Yard Areas Emissions Reduction Program. More than $9.2 million in grants are available to replace or repower drayage trucks and equipment.

The SPRY program encourages individuals and entities operating at designated seaports and Class I rail yards in Texas’ nonattainment areas to replace or repower older on-road vehicles, non-road yard trucks, or other cargo handling equipment with new models.

Applicants may be eligible for funding of up to 80 percent of the cost to replace or repower eligible vehicles and equipment if, for at least two years preceding the submission date of the application, the applicant has:

-Owned or leased the on-road vehicle, non-road yard truck, or other cargo handling equipment eligible to be replaced or repowered under the program, and

-Operated the vehicle or equipment at one or more of the designated seaports or rail yards for a minimum of 200 days of operation per year.

Designated seaports include terminals and facilities located in the Port of Houston (including the participating facilities of the Houston Ship Channel Security District), Port of Galveston, and Port of Freeport. Designated Class I rail yards include terminals and facilities located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Bexar County, the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria area, and El Paso.

Grant applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, or until all available funds have been awarded.
