Volkswagen Trust Funds
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources finalized Missouri’s Beneficiary Mitigation Plan in August 2018. The department developed the 10-year plan to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) from mobile sources after a nine month public engagement process to solicit input from interested stakeholders across the state. The plan outlines Missouri's vision and goals for spending $41 million from the Volkswagen Trust. The federal consent decree governing the Volkswagen Trust requires states to submit these plans to the trustee before making any funding requests for projects. The department also finalized Missouri’s Implementation Guidelines Overview, and both documents are available below.
School bus replacements are open for application through Sept. 14, 2018. The department will host an open meeting on Aug. 30, 2018 in Jefferson City to discuss the plan, guidelines, school bus application period, and next steps.
The department's fact sheet about the VW Trust contains information on the settlement.
