LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Two Kentucky public school districts are getting some help with replacing older diesel school buses.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced this week that the Fleming Board of Education and the Bell County Board of Education have been awarded a portion of more than $3 million in rebates to acquire new buses that are cleaner and reduce pollutants.
The EPA says the funding will provide rebates for 76 school bus fleets in 30 states.
The agency says applicants were randomly selected. It was the second round of the rebate program.
