The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)  awarded the Mid-Atlantic Regional Air Management Association, Inc. (MARAMA) $1.3 million for clean diesel projects as part of the Diesel Emission Reduction Program (DERA) and its ongoing campaign to reduce harmful diesel exhaust that can lead to asthma attacks and premature deaths.

Grant funds repowered three marine vessels and retrofited drayage trucks. Award recipients were selected based on potential for maximizing health and environmental benefits by targeting areas that have significant air quality issues. Reduced air pollution from diesel engines in these areas can have a direct and significant impact on public health.
