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:

 

  1. A brief introduction to the settlement
  2. A review of the specific documentation that Tribes must submit to the VW Settlement Trustee
  3. Specific resources for Tribes to use in submitting their documentation
  4. Time to ask specific questions about the VW Settlement

 

The webinar will be moderated by ITEP’s Project Director Andy Bessler.
