You asked. We listened. This session will provide details on how to apply for grants through MEC. Partnering with us lets you leverage funding from federal and state programs into more cost-effective operations and cleaner vehicles. We’ll discuss how to prepare a project proposal, and cover what technologies typically are – and aren’t – eligible.

This event will consist of a presentation followed by audience Q&A. We will use screen sharing to show our application forms and how to fill them out.

We’ll also touch on additional state and federal funding opportunities, and welcome your questions. Transportation stakeholders of all stripes are welcome, whether public or private, off-road or on – we hope you’ll join us on December 17th. Click here to register for this free event.
