Washington, DC – NGVAmerica continued its VW Settlement Trust leadership with an online webinar on Thursday, July 19.

Twenty states have finalized their distribution plans; an additional 18 states are circulating draft plans for public input.  Several states have already opened applications for VW grant programs using the $2.9 billion in available resources.

NGVAmerica’s VW Settlement Trust webinar shared important details about these funding opportunities for new Natural Gas Vehicle purchases, covering the general requirements for funding applications including project emissions calculations using the U.S. DOE’s Argonne Lab’s HDVEC tool, created for accurately calculating emissions factors for proposed VW projects.
