New Mexico received $17,982,660.90 from the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust, with the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) awarding $5,964,208 for seven projects during the first round of funding. These projects will replace 113 older diesel-fueled vehicles with new cleaner vehicles including: new school buses, public works vehicles, airport electric ground support equipment and infrastructure, and CNG-powered refuse vehicles.
NMED revised their Beneficiary Mitigation Plan (BMP) during the summer of 2019. The revised BMP directs unallocated funds toward the replacement of diesel-fueled vehicles with alternate-fueled and all-electric vehicles, and has reduced the amount of funding available via the DERA option to 3% of the total allocation. New Mexico remains committed to allocating 15% of the total funding (approximately $2.7 million) towards light duty zero-emission vehicle (LDZEV) infrastructure and has added a goal to focus efforts on a complete statewide electric vehicle charging network. Proposals are being sought through January 9, 2020 for a second round of funding ($5 million) for the replacement of heavy-duty diesel vehicles with alternate fueled or electric vehicles, as well as LDZEV infrastructure and supply equipment.

Oregon DEQ has posted its plan for use of Environmental Mitigation funds. Per legislative direction, the initial focus is to upgrade diesel powered school buses either by replacement or installation of advanced exhaust controls. DEQ will target 450 buses at minimum that have been selected in a random draw (see website). 
The Oregon Legislature convened in 2019 and provided additional priorities and criteria for selection of future mitigation actions. HB 2007 authorizes DEQ to fully disburse Oregon’s remaining Environmental Mitigation funds. DEQ will complete an adminstrative rulemaking for the grant program to specify application requirements, project selection criteria, and other requirements pursuant to the preferences included in statute. Estimated rulemaking timeline will be complete in late 2020. Estimated grant program launch is early 2021.
