Your school district could receive up to 80% or more of the cost of new electric or alt-fueled school buses!Funding forSchool Busesin TennesseeGet HelpFind Resources

The TN BEEP (Bus Electrification, Education and Planning) partnership is providing no-cost education and assistance services to school district leadership and fleet management personnel in Tennessee. Significant funding is coming through the EPA over the next five years and this partnership can help any districts that want to “make the switch” to electric or other alternative-fuel school buses.

    (DOT and DOE developed a joint interim definition of disadvantaged communities (DACs) for the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. The definition uses publicly available data sets that capture vulnerable populations, health, transportation access and burden, energy burden, fossil dependence, resilience, and environmental and climate hazards. It includes three components: a) combined census tracts from DOT’s working DAC definition and DOE’s working DAC definition; b) Tribal Lands; and c) U.S. Territories. The geographic area associated with these three DAC components can be viewed in the Justice40 Map tool.)
