You are invited to join ITEP’s VW Settlement Technical Assistance Program’s webinar to learn how Tribes can access the $55 million settlement from Clean Air Act violations by the automaker Volkswagen. For the next 6-10 years, Tribes will be able to sign up as settlement beneficiaries and submit environmental mitigation plans to replace or repower a selected list of diesel vehicles. Tribe have until January 2, 2018 to submit a funding request for the first round of funding and subsequent years have a deadline of September 1st of each year until 2023. If any of the $55 million remains after 2023, funds will remain available to Tribes until the funds are exhausted.
This webinar will last one and a half hours and will provide attendees:
- A brief introduction to the settlement
- A review of the specific documentation that Tribes must submit to the VW Settlement Trustee
- Specific resources for Tribes to use in submitting their documentation
- Time to ask specific questions about the VW Settlement
The webinar will be moderated by ITEP’s Project Director Andy Bessler.
