Webinar on Thursday provides fleets & OEMs tips on accessing nearly $3B in VW settlement money

The Volkswagen ‘Dieselgate’ settlement will provide $2.925 billion in incentive funding for clean transportation projects across the U.S.

While the settlement has created a wealth of opportunity, fleets and OEMs face the daunting challenge of tracking 70-plus state-specific funding programs, sifting through the legal jargon in 633 densely packed pages in the three partial consent decrees, and reviewing 101 dockets filed in U.S. District Court since 2016.

To help take on these challenges Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA) in partnership with Advanced Clean Transportation is offering a free webinar Thursday, Feb. 15 at 9 a.m.

Joe Annotti, senior programs manager at GNA, will be offering tips on how to submit a competitive grant application from a team with a 93 percent success rate and more than $420 million in funding won for clients.

Zachary Kahn, director of government relations at BYD North America, will offer advice from one of the nation’s largest electric bus and truck OEMs on the strategic approach to monitoring and engaging state beneficiaries.

Utah State Representative Stephen Handy (R) will offer political insight into how state legislatures are advancing clean transportation programs.

During the webinar, GNA will also debut its Volkswagen Portal, a new tool that will enable fleet operators to identify and track funding opportunities across the U.S.
