DOE Selects FY2009 Petroleum Reduction Projects

January 8, 2010

In August DOE announced the recipients of 23 cost-shared grants for Clean Cities' Fiscal Year 2009 Petroleum Reduction Technologies Projects for the Transportation Sector (Areas of Interest 1-3). The grants, which total approximately $13.6 million, will fund infrastructure, vehicle, and educational projects to increase availability and awareness of alternative fuels and advanced technology vehicles. Grants will be combined with other public and private funds, with partners providing a more than a two-to-one leverage in funding, with every one federal dollar spent matched by at least two dollars from the project partners.
