2023 Clean School Bus Rebates

OPEN NOW! EPA is accepting new applications for 2023

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law of 2021 authorizes EPA to offer rebates to replace existing school buses with clean and zero-emission (ZE) models.

The 2023 Clean School Bus (CSB) Rebates process includes SAM.gov account registration, rebate application submission, review and selection by EPA. Selectees will then submit purchase orders to request payment and then receive payment, which is followed by new bus delivery, existing bus replacement, and project close out.

Clean School Bus Rebate Application Form

This form is used by applicants to apply to the rebate program. Once applications are submitted to EPA, EPA utilizes a selection process that is outlined in Sections 2 and 6 of the 2023 Clean School Bus (CSB) Rebate Program Guide (pdf) (2.93 MB, September 2023, EPA-420-B-23-032) and reviews the applications. If an application is awarded for funding, a Payment Request Form needs to be completed (see section below).
