Trucks Category is closed!
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources concluded application periods for the Trucks category. The department exhausted the funding for this category, and will not have another application period. Previously, qualifying applicants included owners of medium and heavy-duty diesel trucks with model years 1992 through 2009 operating anywhere in the state of Missouri at least 50% of the time. These trucks were permanently disabled and replaced with newer, more efficient model years. Projects included private-owned and government owned vehicles as well as emergency response vehicles, such as firetrucks and ambulances.
The list below shows applicants awarded under the previous Government Truck and Non-Government Truck categories. The list includes selected applicants receiving funding from February 2019 to present.
In limited circumstances, the department may grant a waiver to Missouri’s VW Trust Program Requirements. To qualify, the applicant must provide the following information:
- The applicant must identify the program requirement for which the waiver is being requested
- The applicant must document the reason for the waiver request
- If the applicant is requesting a waiver of a deadline, the applicant must propose a timeline for compliance
- Notification of the waiver will be provided by email to the person and email address specified by the requester
- The applicant must acknowledge that the department cannot waive, under any circumstances, any provisions of the Volkswagen Diesel Emissions Environmental Mitigation Trust. If uncertain, we highly encourage you to reach out to us to determine if a waiver is possible for your particular circumstances
Example reason for waiver:
An entity is unable to disable their vehicle within the 60-day allowed period after delivery of the new vehicle and requests a two-week extension. Reasons for the extension have included delays with licensing the new vehicle, weather delays at the metal recycling operation for disabling the old vehicle, omplications related to COVID quarantine requirements, etc.
By issuing a waiver, the department is waiving penalty assessments based on the conditions of the waiver. The waiver shall not prevent any subsequent enforcement of other program requirements or be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach of any program requirements.
