Clean Diesel Grants

Ecology has identified diesel exhaust as the air pollutant most harmful to public health in Washington. 70 percent of the cancer risk from airborne pollutants is from diesel exhaust. It puts healthy people at risk for respiratory disease and makes the symptoms worse for people with health problems such as asthma, heart disease, and lung disease. More than 4 million people in Washington live or work close to highways and other major roads where they are most likely to be exposed to diesel exhaust.

Clean Diesel Grants are funded by the Local Toxics Control Account. This money is used to help purchase and install clean diesel technology on publicly- and privately-owned heavy-duty diesel vehicles and equipment in Washington.
