Department of Administration Announces $1.3 Million in Clean Transportation Grants
The Department of Administration (DOA) announces that it is awarding $1.3 million in Clean Transportation grants. These 28 grants will go to Wisconsin companies, organizations and municipalities to help fund the purchase of 81 natural gas and 18 propane vehicles.
“These awards will further expand the number of fleet vehicles in the state using alternate transportation fuels” said Secretary Mike Huebsch. “With increasing demand for alternative fuels, it is crucial that the infrastructure is in place to expand alternative fuels across Wisconsin. By increasing business opportunities in the natural gas, biogas and propane supply chain, as well as lowering fuel costs to Wisconsin businesses and communities, these grants will have a positive impact on Wisconsin’s economy.” Press Release
