The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law of 2021 authorizes EPA to offer rebates to replace existing school buses with clean and zero-emission (ZE) models.
A rebate is a payment from EPA to an eligible entity to subsidize the purchase of a ZE or clean school bus, and eligible infrastructure, that meets the requirements described in this Program Guide. The CSB Rebates will fund the replacement of existing school buses with cleaner buses that result in better air quality on the bus, in bus loading areas, and throughout the communities in which they operate.
