DERA State Program Overview

FY 2015 State Clean Diesel Program

EPA announced a $8.9 million funding opportunity for the FY 2015 State Clean Diesel Program. The 50 states, the District of Columbia, the territories of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and Guam were eligible to participate in this allocation program. All 2015 state program funds were allocated as new awards or supplemental amendments.


EPA allocates DERA funds to the states and territories for the establishment of clean diesel grant and loan programs. Using the formula outlined in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (PDF) (551 pp, 1.3MB, January 2005), the State Clean Diesel Program receives 30 percent of the annual DERA appropriation.

Of the state portion of the funding, two-thirds is provided to participating states and territories as base funding. The remaining third is allocated to states and territories that provide matching funds with cash or in-kind services.
