Original Equipment Manufacturers: Request for Information

This page provides Original Equipment Manufacturers with instructions for responding to the TCEQ's Request for Information to help the TCEQ implement the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program.

The TCEQ offers the opportunity for engine and vehicle manufacturers to provide information to assist the TCEQ in compiling a list of new vehicles and engines, and systems for conversion of vehicles and engines, eligible for funding under the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program (TNGVGP).

The TNGVGP will provide grants for eligible projects to replace existing medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles with new vehicles powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The replacement project may include purpose-built alternative fuel vehicles and engines and may also include new vehicles and engines converted to operate on an eligible fuel.

The TNGVGP will also provide grants for eligible projects to repower an existing vehicle with an eligible engine operating on an eligible fuel or to convert the existing engine to operate on one of the eligible fuels.

For purposes of this request, a respondent must be the manufacturer of the vehicle, engine, or conversion system, certifying to compliance with federal NOx emissions standards. Other entities should not complete the forms. However, as explained in the instructions, the respondent completing the forms should work with other applicable entities, as needed, to compile any cost information requested in the forms.
