In fiscal year (FY) 2014, the National Clean Diesel Campaign will issue a standalone Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) Tribal Competition Request for Proposals (RFP) for a total of up to $1 million. Prior to issuing the RFP, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will host a webinar to discuss this new tribal grant competition and proposed changes to the RFP. This webinar/teleconference will:
- Detail the historical DERA Tribal Competition application process
- Offer grant tips
- Address grant and general DERA competition questions
- Seek feedback on how this RFP can help Tribes reduce diesel emissions that impact tribal communities.
The FY 2014 DERA Tribal Competition RFP is tentatively scheduled to open around April 8, 2014. There will be a second Tribal Competition webinar/teleconference after the RFP opens.
