The Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) authorizes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to allocate funds to states for the establishment of clean diesel projects that will reduce diesel emissions in areas of concern using cost-effective projects. The amount of funding available for allocation and the project requirements can change from year to year.
The 2016 grant is the eighth DERA allocation for the State of Iowa. The DNR - Air Quality Bureau has created a competitive DERA grant program to help fund voluntary diesel exhaust reduction projects. The 2016 DERA Guidelines and Overview provide a more detailed explanation of the program and requirements to participate.
To be considered for this funding opportunity, please submit the following application materials.
Complete applications are due May 12, 2017 at 4 p.m. CST. Applications received after 4 p.m. will be deemed ineligible and not reviewed. Incomplete applications may be disqualified from consideration. Electronic mail and faxed applications will not be accepted.
Questions or requests for clarifications about the grant program must be directed in writing to Jim McGraw via email at Jim.McGraw@dnr.iowa.gov.
DNR reserves the right to amend this guidance at any time using an addendum.
There are two different programs – the State program and the National program. Additional information on the DERA Program is available at
