USD 113 awarded grant for new bus
11/15/2019

(KNZA)--Prairie Hills USD 113 has been awarded a grant to help with the purchase of a new bus.

Superintendent Todd Evans says the USD 113 Board of Education Monday evening approved an agreement with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for acceptance of the grant. “ Because of a grant application that was completed in 2018, USD 113 was awarded a grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment through the Kansas Clean Diesel Program. The grant is for up to $21,136 for the purchase of a new bus while retiring a bus that does not burn fuel as efficiently.”

Evans said the Board approved the purchase of a new 71-passenger bus from Midwest Bus Sales through the Kansas Bus Purchasing Program for $84,545.  The district will use the grant funds toward the new bus cost.

KDHE established the Kansas Clean Diesel Program in 2008 to use federal funds from the Environmental Protection Agency to provide assistance for diesel fleet improvements.
