The goal of the Collaborative is to leverage significant federal
funds to reduce emissions from the most polluting diesel sources
in the most affected communities. Despite the fact that the Collaborative
did not exist when EPA was estimating its Fiscal Year 2005 (FY05)*
budget, EPA dedicated over $1.5 million in discretionary funds towards
the Collaborative. In FY06, however, the Collaborative received
$3 million in the official EPA budget though a $5 million appropriation
to the National Clean Diesel Initiative.
