Grant funding available in the Houston area

Are you considering converting a Houston-area fleet to clean-burning propane autogas? The Houston Galveston Area Council (HGAC) has announced grant funding for light and heavy duty vehicles, as well as refueling infrastructure, to reduce harmful emissions in eight Texas counties. Propane autogas is eligible, but not specifically listed in guidelines.

If your fleet operates in one of these counties — Harris, Fort Bend, Waller, Montgomery, Liberty, Chambers, Galveston and Brazoria — you may be eligible for the program. The grants are available for private and public fleet vehicles that have accelerated turnover. Bi-fuel and conversions may be eligible. Engine destruction is required for the vehicle you are replacing, and quarterly reporting is also required. Infrastructure grants are available for private or public refueling stations.

Please note that fleets may not begin conversion until they have a signed contract from HGAC or they may be deemed ineligible.

There are no deadlines for this funding. To apply or to download the guidelines, please visit HGAC’s website. If you have additional questions, please email or call 713-993-2488.
