Grant money has been made available in the state of New Jersey for snow and ice removal equipment for commercial vehicles.
The New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety-Division of Highway Safety has announced the availability of $50,000 in grant money from the Motor Vehicle Snow and Ice Removal Safety Fund.
In the state of New Jersey, when a driver is fined for failure to remove accumulated ice and snow on their vehicles, a portion of that fine is sent to the Motor Vehicle Snow and Ice Removal Safety Fund.
The fund provides grant money to "encourage private companies to purchase, install, and maintain technology used to remove snow and ice from commercial motor vehicles," according to the New Jersey Register.
The applications for the grant money are due by Oct. 15, and a copy of the grant application form can be found here.
