CTE commends the House Subcommittee on Transportation-Housing Appropriations for approving federal legislation for the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (T-HUD) appropriations bill that would increase grant amounts for transit infrastructure.
The bill has reserved $94 million for the Low- or No-Emission Vehicle grant program (Low-No) – an increase from the original $55 million reserved from FAST Act funding that is set to end by fiscal year 2020.
CTE was a critical voice in Low-No’s original inception and approval in 2015. This program increase is due in part to CTE’s continued advocacy for clean transit on Capitol Hill.
“CTE is proud to not only provide technical support to support transit agencies as they transition to zero-emission buses, but to also provide a strong and independent voice on Capitol Hill to ensure they have the necessary funding to support these efforts,” said Dan Raudebaugh, Executive Director of CTE.
