NASEO & NACAA VW Settlement Clearinghouse

On September 11, NASEO and the National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) launched the NASEO & NACAA Volkswagen Settlement Clearinghouse – an online resource for state and local governments as they develop plans and implement projects under the settlement’s $2.9- billion Environmental Mitigation Trust and coordinate with Volkswagen (VW) subsidiary Electrify America and other major automakers on zero-emission vehicle infrastructure investments.

The NASEO & NACAA VW Clearinghouse is a collaborative program of the two associations to support their state and local government members as they consider and select eligible projects and investment strategies under the VW settlement. The Clearinghouse provides information, tools and resources to assist state and local agencies to develop strategies under the settlement that will reduce mobile source emissions; support the alternative fuels market; and further environmental, public health, economic development and energy goals. A joint press release from NASEO and NACAA provides additional information on the Clearinghouse and settlement, and the Clearinghouse can be accessed here:
