The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (Board) has established a compressed natural gas (CNG) heavy vehicle grant program available for trucks that are listed as heavy duty vehicles Class 5 through 8.  The $200,000 grant program will fund the incremental cost of a CNG powered vehicle over the equivalent diesel vehicle.  Awards will be capped at $20,000 per vehicle and $40,000 per applicant and will be processed on a first-come-first-served basis until funding is exhausted. 


Eligibility is limited to Class 5 through 8 trucks registered in the seven counties that the Air Quality Index was previously classified as unhealthy for sensitive groups for ten or more days in 2015 and 2016.  These are the counties of Camden, Mercer, Middlesex, Bergen, Gloucester, Hudson, and Ocean Counties.  Eligible applicants for the grant program include municipalities, political subdivisions, incorporated nonprofit entities, corporations and limited liability companies or partnerships registered to do business in New Jersey.


The application window opens no sooner than noon on November 20, 2017, and the window closes noon on December 20, 2017.  Applications should be submitted to the email address: BPU.CNGVehicleGrant@BPU.NJ.Gov
