West Virginia Receives Economic Recovery Funding In a move that stands to create jobs. boost local economies, reduce diesel emissions and protect human health and the environment for the people in West Virginia, the U.S. Environmen- tal Protection Agency has awarded the state $1.73 million. The funding can be used to support clean diesel projects and loan programs to address the nation's existing fleet of more than 11 million diesel engines. "This is how we create new. green jobs while we protect human health and the environment," said EPA Act- ing Regional Administrator William C. Early. "These cx)st economy and create new, green jobs that will im- prove air quality. The funds provided by the Ameri- can Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) of 2009 will go to West Virginia's Department of Environ- mental Protection Diesel Emission Reduction program. Eligible projects include engine idle reduction and ret- rofit technologies, engine replace- ment. vehicle replacement, and clean diesel emerging technologies. In addition to helping to create and retain jobs. the clean diesel projects would reduce premature deaths. asthma attacks and other respiratory ailments, lost work days, and many other health impacts every year. Under ARRA's state clean diesel funding program, $88.2 million is di- vided equally through a noncompeti- tive allocation process, meaning that all 50 states and the District of Co- lumbia will receive $1.73 million. States. local governments, non- profits and tribal agencies can also compete for a portion of $206 million under ARRA's national clean diesel funding program. President Obama signed the Ameri- can Recovery and Reinvestmenl.At of 2009 on February 17, 2009 and has directed that the Recovery Act be implemented with unprecedented transparency and accountability. To that end, the American people can see how every dollar is being invested at For information on EPA's imple- mentation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 in West Virginia, visit For information about EPA's clean diesel initiatives, visit cleandiesel.
