Last week, Shoppa’s began helping eligible customers apply for the 2021-2022 Emissions Reduction Incentive Grants (ERIG) program. The grants, which are part of the Texas legislature’s efforts to improve air quality in specific counties, are part of the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP). Grant recipients typically receive significant funding to apply toward new equipment.
Here in the Houston area, you must use your equipment at least 55% of the time in any of the following counties: Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Hardin, Harris, Jefferson, Liberty, Montgomery, Orange and Waller.
Equipment used mostly for competition or recreational purposes is not eligible for funding. Qualifying equipment includes:
- On-road heavy-duty vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 8,501 pounds
- Non-road equipment powered by an engine rated at 25 horsepower or greater
