NASEO and the National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) launched the NASEO and NACAA Volkswagen Settlement Clearinghouse today - an online resource for state and local governments as they develop plans and implement projects under the settlement's $2.9- billionEnvironmental Mitigation Trust and coordinate with Volkswagen (VW) subsidiary Electrify America and other major automakers on zero-emission vehicle infrastructure investments.
The NASEO & NACAA VW Clearinghouse is a collaborative program of the two associations to support their state and local government members as they consider and select eligible projects and investment strategies under the VW settlement. The Clearinghouse provides information, tools and resources to assist state and local agencies to develop strategies under the settlement that will reduce mobile source emissions; support the alternative fuels market; and further environmental, public health, economic development and energy goals. A press release with additional information on the Clearinghouse and settlement can be found online here.
Over the next several months, NASEO and NACAA will add resources and features to the Clearinghouse. If there are resources, tools, or other topics you'd like to see added to the Clearinghouse, or if you have any questions, please contact Cassie Powers, NASEO Senior Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-299-8800 x121.
