Federal grants available for diesel upgrades

BISMARCK (AP) — Federal grant money is available to local governments in North Dakota to upgrade diesel equipment.

The state Health Department said the $100,00 grant pool from the Environmental Protection Agency is aimed at reducing diesel emissions.

The “clean diesel” grants will reimburse about one-fourth of the cost of replacing older, less efficient diesel vehicles and equipment.

The application deadline is Jan. 31.
