June 24, 2021—The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy announced it will offer a second round of grants for EVs, hydrogen fuel cell and hybrid vehicles to replace current commercial and mass transit fleets.

According to a report from the Mining Gazette, $16 million of the department's Fuel Transformation Program has been allocated to replace medium- and heavy-duty diesel trucks, shuttles and buses. One the Fuel Transformation Program's main objectives is increasing the usage of zero emission vehicles, in part through removing obstacles to replacing older internal-combustion vehicles.

Applications for a grant can be filed through Aug. 20. Another $14 million will be made available in the next two years, but that will be dedicated mostly to air and water travel.
