What are grants?

A grant is a fund given by an entity – often a public body, charitable foundation, or a specialized grant-making institution – to an individual or another entity for a specific purpose linked to public benefit. Unlike loans, grants are not to be paid back.

Who is eligible?

Many schools and municipalities are eligible for various grants specifically related to electrifying their fleets! Funding outlets include federal grants, state grants, foundation grants and corporate giving initiatives. All of these forms of funding and can be used by your school district to electrify your fleet!
