The Biden-Harris administration announced the recipients of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2023 Clean School Bus Program rebate competition, funded by President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda.

The rebates will help selectees purchase 56 clean school buses in 18 school districts across Missouri. The program will also help Missouri accelerate the transition to zero-emission vehicles and replace existing school buses, which have been linked to asthma and other conditions that harm the health of students and surrounding communities.

The 18 Missouri school districts are:

  • Academie Lafayette has been selected to receive $1,380,000 in rebate funding to purchase four clean school buses.
  • Affton School District has been selected to receive $200,000 in rebate funding to purchase one clean school bus.
