Vehicle Repair and Replacement Assistance Available Through AirCheckTexas Program
Did you know you can receive up to $3,500 for your older vehicle? This spring consider combining AirCheckTexas funds with your tax refund to help purchase a new car. North Texans whose vehicles have failed the emissions portion of the state inspection in the past 30 days or are at least 10 years old are encouraged to apply for assistance. Vehicles must be registered in a participating county and income requirements must be met. For more information, visit www.nctcog.org/airchecktexas or call 1-800-898-9103.
April Car Care Clinics
NCTCOG is partnering with local automotive repair shops to sponsor Car Care Clinics throughout April to help North Texas drivers whose vehicles have the check engine light illuminated. A vehicle's check engine light turns on when there may be an issue that could negatively impact its emissions. These free clinics will provide drivers with an opportunity to talk to a technician about their vehicle's issues. Additionally, staff will be at each clinic to discuss financial assistance that is available to help drivers with repairs and give away a limited number of free vehicle emergency kits. For more information, visit www.NTXCarCare.org.
Diesel Idling Hot Spots RFI
NCTCOG is seeking information to identify potential diesel emissions reduction projects as well as sites, companies or agencies operating diesel-powered vehicles or equipment involved in disproportionate idling activity in the North Texas region. This information will help NCTCOG target air pollution from older on-road, non-road and/or off-road diesel vehicles or equipment and provide possible incentives for replacement or repower of diesel vehicles or equipment. Entities interested in providing input and/or partnering with NCTCOG on this topic should provide responses to AQfunding@nctcog.org by April 14, 2017.
