TCEQ Announces Grants for the Texas Clean Fleet Program

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality announced that up to $7.7 million in grants is being made available to encourage entities that operate large fleets of vehicles in Texas to replace diesel-powered vehicles with alternative fuel or hybrid vehicles.

The TCEQ Texas Clean Fleet Program (TCFP) grants are part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan, and are available to owners of fleets of 75 or more vehicles operated in Texas. Grant applicants must commit to replace at least 20 diesel-powered vehicles with hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles.

Projects eligible for funding under this program must result in a reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions of at least 25 percent. Eligible projects may be limited to certain counties in Texas.

TCEQ will conduct grant application workshops to review TCFP grant requirements and application procedures for potential applicants. All workshops are free and no registration is required.

The three TCFP workshops are as follows:
• July 28, 2014, in Austin, 1:30 p.m. at TCEQ headquarters, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building F, Room 2210, Austin, Texas 78753;
• July 29, 2014, in Houston, 1:30 p.m. at the Tracy Gee Community Center, AR-1, 3599 Westcenter Drive, Houston, TX 77042; and
• August 4, 2014, in Arlington, 1:30 p.m., North Central Texas Council of Governments, Tranportation Council Room, 616 Six Flags Drive, Centerpoint II, Arlington, TX 76011.

Application deadline is October 3, 2014, 5:00 p.m. CST.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
