The California VW Mitigation Trust, a statewide program to fund NOx emission mitigation projects, particularly in disadvantaged communities.



The Zero-Emission Class 8 Freight and Port Drayage Truck Project is part of the VW Environmental Mitigation Trust, a nationwide program that provides $423 million for California to fully mitigate the excess nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions caused by VW’s use of illegal emissions testing defeat devices in VW diesel vehicles. California’s funding will support advanced technology vehicle and equipment deployments and accelerate the zero-emission transformation of the heavy-duty fleet.  More than 50 percent of the total project funds are expected to benefit disadvantaged or low-income communities.
