Carbon Reduction Program


Carbon Reduction Program (CRP)


The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) must establish a carbon reduction formula program for states to reduce transportation emissions. Eligible state funding activities include truck stop electrification, diesel engine retrofits, vehicle-to-infrastructure communications equipment, public transportation, port electrification, and deployment of alternative fuel vehicles, including charging or fueling infrastructure and the purchase or lease of zero emission vehicles. Funding can also be used to support the development of state carbon reduction strategies, in consultation with designated metropolitan planning organizations. At the request of a state, DOT must provide technical assistance in the development of the carbon reduction strategy.
