School Bus Grant Program

This program is currently closed. We expect it to reopen with new funding in early 2018. 

The San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) AB 923 School Bus Replacement and Retrofit Program provides eligible school districts with funding to replace and retrofit school buses. 

The Program will provide funding for the following:

  • The purchase of a new lower-emission school bus to replace an older bus.  Old public school buses eligible for replacement include those powered by a 1993 or older model year engine.
  • The purchase and installation of an ARB-verified level 3 diesel emission control system on public school buses equipped with 1987 or newer engines.
  • The replacement of on-board compressed natural gas tanks on public school buses which are near the end of their service life.
  • Alternative fuel infrastructure to facilitate fueling of a new alternative fuel school bus.
  • Refueling infrastructure maintenance.

To apply, review the Request for Proposal provided below along with the application forms.

Please contact Vince Kirkhuff at 805.781.4247 with any questions regarding this program.
