State and Private


Alternative Fueling Facilities Program (AFFP) - TERP

The AFFP, administer by TCEQ’s Texas Emissions Reduction Program (TERP), offers grants for the construction or expansion of alternative fuel fueling stations within the Clean Transportation Zone. Eligible AFFP projects include new station construction or the expansion of an existing facility that will provide a new fueling service or capacity.

Clean Fleet Grants - TERP

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) administers the Texas Clean Fleet Program (TCFP) as part of TERP. TCFP encourages owners of fleets containing diesel vehicles to permanently remove the vehicles from the road and replace them with alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) or hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Grants are available to fleets to offset the incremental cost of such replacement projects.

Clean School Bus Program - TERP

Any school district or charter school may receive a grant through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to pay for the incremental costs to replace school buses or install diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters, emission-reducing add-on equipment, and other emissions reduction technologies in qualified school buses. Furthermore, funds may also be used to purchase qualifying fuels.

Clean Vehicle and Infrastructure Grants - TERP

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) administers the Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG) Program and Rebate Grants Program as part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP). Eligible projects include those that involve replacement, retrofit, repower, or lease or purchase of new heavy-duty vehicles; alternative fuel dispensing infrastructure; idle reduction and electrification infrastructure; and alternative fuel use. The Rebate Grants Program provides grants to upgrade or replace diesel heavy-duty vehicles and non-road equipment.

Emissions Reduction Incentive Grant - TERP

The Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG) Program offers grants to upgrade or replace on-road vehicles, non-road equipment, stationary equipment, marine vessels, locomotives, on-vehicle electrification and idle reduction infrastructure, and rail relocation and improvement projects, which must result in a reduction of emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) of at least 25%.

Light Duty Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebates - TERP

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) administers the Light-Duty Motor Vehicle Purchase or Lease Incentive Program for the purchase or lease of a new light-duty vehicle powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), propane, hydrogen, or electricity.

Rebate Grants Program - TERP

The Rebate Grants Program, administered under TERP, is a simplified first-come, first-served grant program to upgrade or replace diesel heavy-duty vehicles and/or equipment.

Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program (TNGVGP) - TERP

The TNGVGP, a Texas Emissions Reduction Program (TERP), provides grants to encourage an entity that owns and operates a heavy-duty or medium-duty motor vehicle to repower the vehicle with a natural gas engine or replace the vehicle with a natural gas vehicle. The program covers up to 90% of the cost of dedicated natural gas of dedicated natural gas or propane medium and heavy-duty vehicles.


Propane Vehicle and Equipment Incentive

The Propane Council of Texas provides propane vehicle incentives to private, non-profit, local government, state, and school fleets. New dedicated propane vehicles and aftermarket conversions are eligible for an incentive equal to the incremental cost, up to $7,500. Each fleet is limited to $20,000 in total incentive awards.

Additionally, a $1,000 incentive is available for each new or converted propane commercial mower operated by public and private entities (excluding state agencies). Mower applicants are limited to seven incentive awards.
