The North Carolina Clean Technology Center (NCCETC) is requesting proposals for $1.3 million in federal funding for emission-reducing transportation projects.

Any government entity, business and nonprofit can apply for project funding. The Clean Fuel Advanced Technology project is a three-year $6.2 million initiative supported by the state’s transportation department and by the federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality funds.

The deadline for project proposals is Nov. 3.

In the last two years more than $3 million was distributed to 30 public and private entities for a variety of projects including natural gas-powered trucks and refueling infrastructure, propane refueling equipment and vehicle conversions, electric vehicle charging stations, on-board telematics equipment and biodiesel refueling equipment, according to the NCCETC.
