The EPA has announced the kick off of the 2017 School Bus Rebate Program, offering over $7,000,000 in vehicle and/or retrofit rebates for your fleet and NSTA is offering help and guidance for Members who want to apply for funds. The School Bus Rebate Program is designed to promote emission reduction and the health of our communities by funding the replacement or retrofit of older school buses. This year contractors are eligible for up to $20,000 per vehicle replacement and up to $6,000 per vehicle for retrofitting buses that result in reduced emissions. NSTA will assist members with preparing rebate applications in time for the Nov. 12, 2017 application deadline.
