Funds Available for Lawn and Garden Equipment

The Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC) is requesting applications to fund the purchase of low-emission, commercial-grade, lawn and garden equipment to improve air quality in the Denver Metro/North Front Range ozone nonattainment area. Approximately $120,000 is available for funding the replacement of gasoline-powered commercial lawn and garden equipment with battery or propane powered equipment. Funding will be on a first-come-first-served basis with minimum awards of $1,000 and maximum awards of $15,000 per entity. The online application will be open continuously until funding is expended.
