The objectives of the program are to help the state of Michigan achieve improvements in the federal air quality standards for particulate matter and ozone by:

    • Working within specific geographic areas and industry sectors of Michigan to identify where environmental improvements can be made through diesel emissions reductions, including reasons for the emissions reductions and major sources in the affected areas.
    • Encouraging the development and expansion of innovative technologies that can be used by these industry sectors as well as ways to implement diesel emissions reductions at the local level.
    • Acting as a conduit to help identify funding opportunities and resources that can be used to implement diesel emissions reduction technologies and strategies, and to provide resources for the application process.
    • Expanding awareness of the benefits of pollution prevention strategies that reduce diesel emissions.
