Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is using funds from the Volkswagen settlement to reduce air pollution in Minnesota today and invest in a cleaner transportation system for tomorrow. Air pollution from vehicles both causes negative health impacts for our communities and contributes to climate change. The settlement funds offer an opportunity for us to tackle both of these problems by reducing harmful emissions — including greenhouse gases — from vehicles and equipment in our state.

In the first few years of the MPCA’s Volkswagen settlement grants program, MPCA distributed nearly $35 million across five categories: transit buses and trucks, off road equipment, school buses, heavy-duty electric vehicles, and EV charging stations.
