Clean Energy Transportation Grants Available

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center is offering an “Accelerating Clean Transportation Now (ACTNow)” funding opportunity designed to promote clean transportation solutions. The request for proposals is offering $1.4 million in matching grants ranging from $50,000 to $200,000. The center is seeking to pilot innovative, broadly replicable clean transportation models across different vehicle types, populations, and regions of the state. Successful applicants would propose projects that attract substantial third-party investment, can produce significant transportation-related carbon emission reductions at scale, help to grow the state’s clean transportation sector, and demonstrate a feasible and equitable path to benefiting from any potential cap-and-invest program. The large healthcare sector of the economy has a role to play in clean transportation options. An informational webinar on the program will be held on December 17, 2019, and applications to the program will be due on March 3, 2020. For more information, please see the RFP webpage here.
