Small Pennsylvania construction firms can take advantage of funding for upgrading their diesel fleets by attending a free webinar scheduled for Nov. 10 from 9:30 to 10 a.m., the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) said Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
“We take our role in protecting the public’s health by regulating air pollutants in the county very seriously,” Dr. Karen Hacker, ACHD's director, said. “Helping companies and organizations take advantage of the current opportunity is part of that responsibility and is another step … towards improving our air quality.”
ACHD’s purpose in proffering the funding is to relieve the burden on small businesses so that they can in turn stay competitive during imminent transitions in emissions regulations. Diesel engines produce particulates, which are harmful to the environment. As laws change, the number of diesel-powered vehicles on job sites may be limited.
Eligibility is contingent on a company’s making $36.5 million or less annually in receipts; additionally, the bulk of its work must take place in Allegheny County. The “Build It With Clean Diesel” grant program will pay up to 75 percent of engine re-powering costs and up to 100 percent for retrofits. A maximum of $100,000 is available per company.
A question and answer session with fund administrators will be included in the session. There is no cost to attend but pre-registration is required by contacting Jason Koss at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 412-343-8000.
