The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s Clean School Bus Rebate Program will provide $5 billion over five years to school districts buying electric buses. This year, the administration is awarding just under a billion dollars in grants, and Alaska’s own Wrangell School District will be awarded funds to help purchase their first electric school bus.

Electric school buses reduce greenhouse gas pollution and ensure cleaner air for students.

There will be four more years for schools to apply for electric school bus funding. Alaska districts should make plans to begin transitioning their fleets and take advantage of this funding.

Nice work Wrangell!

Will you stand with our forests?

Our forests are invaluable. They’re chock full of centuries old trees, provide irreplaceable wildlife habitat and act as a natural climate solution. It’s up to us to save our forests from clear-cutting. This week make a Giving Tuesday gift to help protect our forests.
