N.J. Clean Construction Program

The NJ Clean Construction Program, which provides funding for retrofits and modernization of off-road construction equipment, will provide valuable reductions in particulate matter, as well as VOC and NOx, which are ozone precursors.  Grant money is currently available for installing retrofits on construction equipment (100% of the cost of the device and installation), or purchasing replacement equipment (up to 30% of the purchase, not to exceed $100,000).  Projects that will be the focus of the NJ Clean Construction Program are:

  • Construction equipment used on projects that are conducted in urban/sensitive areas;
  • Construction equipment with the highest use;
  • Older construction equipment

Program Specifics

To date, under DEP’s current USEPA DERA grant, DEP has provided 9 grants for the installation of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF’s), totaling $172,388.45 in Federal funding.  The State’s match has provided for 41 grants for the installation of DPF’s, totaling $474,760.00 in State funding.
