As part of the Texas Railroad Commission’s (RRC) role in expanding the use of natural gas vehicles, the RRC invites you to consider being a partner with them on a grant that can help citizens, drivers, and taxpayers breathe a little easier.

The Railroad Commission has approximately $700,000 in grant funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to help public fleets purchase new, ultra-low-emission natural gas fuel systems on a new or retrofitted vehicle. The matching funds for the purchase of the vehicles must come from non-federal sources. Additional information about the grants and current partners can be found at

For more information, including assistance completing the fleet worksheet and questions about nonattainment areas and vehicles currently available, contact Heather Ball at 512-463-7359 or
