Through the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA), Congress appropriates funds for projects to reduce diesel emissions from diesel fleets. The Volkswagen Trust - DERA Option award category is a cost-share program allowing both private and public entities to apply for DERA funding. The department matches the DERA grant with Volkswagen Trust funds to ensure that Missouri qualifies for the matching bonus from the federal DERA grant. By doing this, the department earned a bonus resulting in $908,508 of project funding for state fiscal year 2022.
