School Bus Rebates: Clean School Bus Program
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law of 2021 authorizes EPA to offer rebates to replace existing school buses with clean and zero-emission (ZE) models. The 2022 Clean School Bus (CSB) Rebates process includes SAM.gov account registration, application submission, review and selection by EPA, purchase order submission and request for payment, payment receipt, new bus delivery and old bus replacement, and close out.
1. State and local governmental entities that provide bus service
Public school districts, including charter schools, with an NCES District ID are eligible to apply directly for funding.
Most State governmental entities would not be eligible to apply, but some, like South Carolina, own bus fleets and would be eligible.
2. Eligible contractors - Eligible contractors are for-profit, not-for-profit, or nonprofit entities that have the capacity to (1) sell clean or ZE school buses or related charging or fueling infrastructure to school bus owners or (2) arrange financing for such a sale.
School bus dealers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that meet these criteria are eligible contractors.
3. Nonprofit school transportation associations.
4. Indian tribes, tribal organizations, or tribally controlled schools responsible for the purchase of school buses or providing school bus service for a Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) funded school
