The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) expects to open a new Rebate Grants Program funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act within the next four to six weeks. The advanced-notice web page includes drafts of the notice and grant application form (both drafts are submitted for background-information purposes only, and are subject to change before rebate applications will begin to be accepted).

The TERP Rebate Grants Program offers a simplified application process under the Emissions Reduction Incentive Grant Program and the eligible reimbursement amounts are predetermined based on default usage rates (miles/hours). Rebate grants will only be issued for repowering or replacing non-road and on-road vehicles and equipment.

Applicants must operate the equipment at least 75 percent of its annual usage in 34 listed, TERP-eligible counties in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston-Galveston-Brazoria, Austin and San Antonio, Beaumont-Port Arthur, and Tyler-Longview areas. Listed counties are the state's nonattainment areas. Eligible equipment must have a projected life of at least five or seven years.

If an application is determined complete and eligible, the grant will be awarded and a contract issued, without review, ranking, or selection. Applications are reviewed, processed, and awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.
