Project Title & Description
American Recovery and Reinvestment Funds to Lincoln-Lancaster National Clean Diesel Grant Program
This assistance agreement provides funding to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. This project will reduce diesel emissions significantly through the installation of EPA-verified retrofit technologies and verified idle-reduction technologies on diesel-powered vehicles and equipment. The estimated diesel emissions reductions for this project are at least 17,497 pounds per year. Emission reductions from these vehicles will achieve significant health benefits for sensitive populations, which in turn will reduce health care costs. This project will create new jobs, preserve existing jobs, and spur the economy.
