The Wisconsin Department of Administration has made $1 million available to motor carriers to reduce diesel truck idling.

Those based in the state are eligible to apply for cost-sharing funds through the Diesel Truck Idling Reduction Grant Program. The program provides up to 50% reimbursement for idling reduction equipment and installation on heavy-duty diesel truck-tractors.

Grant funds are not available retroactively for any idle reduction units purchased before July 1, 2013.

The deadline for motor carriers to apply for grant funds is August 9, 2013.

The application materials and more information about the grant program can be found online.
