TFG is pleased to announce that the City of St. Petersburg, FL EPA was awarded FY 2019 Clean Fuel Diesel grant application.  The City requested grant funding to replace aging diesel-fueled sanitation trucks with compressed natural gas trucks.  The City was initially informed by EPA of their grant award in the amount of $888,235. EPA recently revised their grant award to the City to $1,510,701!  With this additional funding St. Petersburg will be able to accelerate the conversion of the sanitation truck fleet to CNG.  TFG wrote the grant on the City’s behalf.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to release in the next couple of months Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Brownfields Grants Programs.  As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, the Brownfields program was reauthorized and funding doubled to $200 million for fiscal years 2019-2023. TFG co-hosted a Brownfields Grant Webinar with eCivis on October 2, 2018; a link to the webinar is here
